built my own stringing rack

What is the purpose of the rack?

Not being a smartass, I was just wondering if there was some reason other than to keep the racquets organized and out of harm's way.

when you string for people, its nice to have everything organized by due date.

and having everything on a rack keeps everything organized, where frames in the front are due sooner than frames in the back.

also not to mention it looks professional having frames in a rack vs laying around against the wall or somewhere.

Thanks, that does make sense. How much did it cost to put that together if you don't mind my asking?

20 bucks in materials.

Awesome craftsmanship!

Nice work! I especially liked the way you accounted for the stability issue by making the base footprint larger than the top section; makes it look nicer too.

lol I'd put your crusties in the linen basket before spending 20 bucks if you wanted a more professional look.

j/k your workmanship is far better than I could ever achieve!

Very nice, I might look into building one myself. Right not I have a rod in a shelf that I just hang racquets from.

I think Gamma sells a stand for 16.95, but nothing like making it on your own!

Good job; looks nice.

details? Is that just PVC pipe and foam sleeves?

Are you a female kchau? I've just never seen a guy before who was secure enough in his masculinity to post pictures of his 10 lb dumbbells. :)
