Unless you build your own home, chances are pretty good that the storage space in your current living arrangement doesn't exactly fit your specific needs. An easy solution is to build a small clothing rod to fit in the corner of a room. Fill it with your work clothes or your go-to items that are in constant rotation, and it will become a life saver!

Gather all of your supplies. Most stores will cut all the lumber and copper rod down to size. Some stores will even drill holes if needed. Make the holes 1" to accommodate the 3/4" copper pipe, making sure to double the holes on the last piece that was cut in half.

After all pieces have been cut to size and holes have been drilled, lay out two large pieces and one small one. Align holes and form a triangle. Staple or nail it into place, making sure the holes stay aligned.

Set each side triangle piece upright, making sure you have support on each side. Run the copper rods in through each set of holes. Apply the E6000 between the rod and wood, making sure it has proper support and is stable. Let it set and dry according to the time prescribed on the tube of E6000.
