I had been storing all my belts on the upper shelf of my closet.
They were pretty disorganized and I decided that I needed a better way to
store and organize them.
So, I made a belt holder out of some some scrap poplar that I had lying
around. It has three rows of 1 & 1/2" brass cup hooks to hold the belts.
These rows are staggered: the top and bottom rows have seven hooks and the middle
row has six. The middle six are centered between the hooks above and below them.
The rows are also on separate pieces of wood. The wood is stacked so that each
row is a different height. The rows step up and out as they get higher so that the
belts are able to hang over each other more easily.
The belt holder measures 21" wide x 7 & 1/2" tall. It is 3/4" thick
at the bottom and 2 & 1/4" thick at the top (three pieces of 3/4" wood stacked).
I didn't realize that I had so many belts until I started hanging them all
up on this belt holder. This belt holder was easy to build, it looks nice and it does
a great job of keeping all of my belts organized.
