Why Build This Project?
The 2x4 Clothes Rack is useful and practical. It’s designed to conveniently hang a large number of clothes in an informal location like a garage or storage room. It’s constructed using inexpensive 2x4s, one 2x6, plus two standard closet rods and four swivel casters.
Your total investment will be about $100.
