Scooter Stand How To and Happy Birthday!!

I guess some one pinned my picture of our scooter stand we built over two years ago. 
This pin has caused a chain reaction of pins and multiple requests for some sort of how to
So here it goes.
Keep in mind we tend to build with what we have.  
You can alter this and use almost anything you have. 
 But I will tell ya what we used.


We basically made a fork out of 2x4's. 
 We had five scooters so we made it to fit five.  
Our end piece was 21 1/4 inches long.
The tines on our "fork" were 19 inches long.  
We used six and spaced them  2 1/2" apart.  
(Keep in mind that some scooters are larger than the ones I have shown here.)  
(We have a extra large one now that is a very tight fit.)
I suggest you use your scooters to determined the spacing.


We used a quarter inch thick scrap of press wood for the bottom.
  It helps keep everything straight.
We used wood screws to put it together.  


You could paint it to make it look oh so pretty,
 but we just needed it ASAP! 
It's very simple yet it is easy to use and fairly sturdy.
 Good luck!

I also wanted to say Happy Birthday to my third son, 
Quinton!!
He celebrated his birthday this last week 
and we are so proud of the young man he is turning into! 
We love you!

Love the beedroom.I saw you are a Morman.I don't understand why GOD would send a secret message to someone else.He sent His son,Jesus for us.When Jesus died ,He took all our sins and washed us clean. Why after all those years would He send a secret message to someone? I have never read in the bible it stating in time a message will be sent that only one person can reveal.Then anothe rbook will be writtin.?I totaly respect that God gave us all a choice as to what we want to believe.I just don't understand why the bible has to be read in so many different ways.I guess that's human nature. Just my two cents.

Hi! Waht a wonderful post and what a wonderful design! (and don't worry... I know you know to ignore the Mormon haters... I mean, insert "jew" or "catholic" or "Muslim" for Mormon in crazypant's post above and it would count as hate speech, but since we don't usually litigate... yeah, say whatever you want.

and your blog looks awesome and I cna't wait to scoot around here some more (you see what I did there) Have a wonderful week and glad I found you on pinterest!

Awesome!! Thanks so much for the instructions on the Scooter Stand! (now maybe they won't get run over in the garage.)

And I agree with Carolina..ignore the haters. I don't have the same beliefs as you but you LDS girls have the BEST blogs and boards! ;)

I had the picture pinned for a while now & just went to blog about pins that I have tried & loved! I did some research & found it linked back to your blog. I changed my Pin so that it links back to your blog too. We made one & it works great! Thanks for sharing!!

What an Excellent idea :) I have become so irritated with the scooters lying around and the balancing act while trying to lean them against the wall. I am starting this project tomorrow!
