Default I made one!

Got tired of layin my bow on the ground on usin my back pocket for an arrow holder. Made me a bow rack out of 1 1/4 pvc.

Heres what I used.

1-10' piece of 1 1/4 pvc
4- T's
4- 90 degree elbows (needed 6 to make it look finished, but it works the way it is)
1- 6' piece of pipe insulation

I have less than $10 worth of materials. Took me about 20 minutes to build.
Dont ask me any measurements. I used a pencil an a good eye!

I didnt glue it together just in case I want to take it apart. Used self tappin screws to fasten together.

It started out as a gun rest for my pop up blind (for my son) Well, my wife stole the first one cuz she wanted to hang sweaters on it after she washed em. Then I started makin another gun rest and it turned into this. I still have a gun rest to build!

I figure you can rest three bows on it. Maybe only two Hoyts. Those bows are heavy. Not sure if this stand is load rated for three Hoyts!!

Here are the measurements of the rack. I added the front piece on the ground today, so I went over 10'. Had to add 2 more 90 degree elbows as well. To make this rack w/ the front support, you'll need:

2- 8"
3-16"
2-14"
2-25"
4-T's
6-90 degree elbows

Thanks for the pic and measurements.

What is the distance (gap) b/w the two uprights for the bow rest? Basically how much gap between the two "T"s on the bottom piece of pipe. Thanks...

Believe it or not I started to build one of these just like yours but it didn't work right for my bow so I made some changes. That stand went to the lease but this is what I came up with for the house.

ConroeT-kat,
If you leave the holder outside, don't forget to drill some drainage holes somewhere.
I am speaking from experience with the one I built similar to yours.

I know of what you're saying Pazthru. I can't drill the bottom of the holders because of the way it is put together. I just lay it over so rain doesn't get in the tubes.
