How to organize chains

Beginning with an old 8-inch-diameter 6½-foot-tall metal pipe, I built a chain tower. To keep it from falling over, I used a worn-out disk blade welded upside down to one end. Then I cut out six 3×7-inch plates and notched a ½-inch cut halfway down the middle. Plates are welded onto the pipe and spaced evenly. With chains hanging in the notches, they stay clean and organized. The very top makes a good place for tie-downs, hooks, cable hoists, and so on.
