Make a DIY Industrial Style Scaffold Clothes Rack

An easy to make, industrial style, scaffold clothing and shoe rack.  This popular loft style, heavy duty clothes rail is a simple and robust solution for storing and displaying clothes and shoes in the home, shop or at a trade show/ exhibition.  Lockable casters on the base make it mobile, and you can also build it shorter to hang kids clothes.
