Truck Rack Converts To Tough Little Shed
When one of our sons no longer needed his pickup's livestock racks, he dropped them off at our place. We didn't have a use for them, either, but after looking at them for a long time it occurred to me that covering the racks with plywood would give us a tight little shed to store lawn mowers and tools.
  Covering the racks with plywood was an easy job. We cut up some 2 by 6's for uprights and then sandwiched them to the rack siding, using 1 by 4's on the inside. We used 3/8-in. bolts to secure the uprights. Then we nailed the plywood to the 2 by 6's.
  The roof has a 6-in. slope and is covered with roll roofing (not shown in photo).
  To move the shed around we nailed on some treated 2 by 6 runners, which are angled both on front and back so that we can push the building in either direction.
