Thanks all Some people looking at the pics thought it was made of wood, Its made of steel tube flat bar sheet metal and angle iron. Some of the steel I was saving for a worthy project but I started thinking I better start using the stuff up before its too late.

Nice storage solution ! I've been thinking of something similar, but haven't found a good deal on the pvc or other type of pipe.

How long are the pipes?

With my luck, if something like that was to decide to go over, I would be laying on the floor underneath it to cushion the sudden stop.
The unit is quite stable with the casters outside of the uprights.

I think I am done loading it up, I am a little concerned about the 250 Chinese pound rating on the casters but they seem to work fine. Here are pics of the front, back, and sides.

Default PVC holders

I used a piece of 4in dia pvc pipe with two end caps to store welding rods. I glued the bottom cap on and put a door pull on the top one. It kept them organized and dry.
