Thanks to Jost Litzen from Hamburg, Germany for sending in these pics of a shoe rack he designed using simple drain pipes purchased at a hardware store.

The pipes are held together using a tension belt.

These are the best kinds of do-it-yourself projects because the materials are so flexible. Any round piping or tubes will work (although Jost notes to use something sturdy and thick) and you could hold them together using tape, rope or how about…discarded ties?

Thanks Jost!
