I started with a 4 tier x 12 shoes Shoe Tree from amazon
https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00AEXIYEC/ref=psdc_11601913011_t1_B00N43JURE (or something similar, they come in different colors and either 3 or 4 tier)

Using bolt cutters I snipped each of the shoe loops so it was only a single rod. I suppose I could have just snipped off the top of the loop and had 24 rods instead of 21, but the spacing would be very tight.

I then epoxied some short dowels (5/8" x 2 in. for 18mm motors, 1/2" x 1.5 in. for 13mm motors) on the end of each rod, so they wouldn't tear the motor tubes.
I made the top tier for 13mm, the other three tiers for 18mm.

Brilliant idea! My LPR wall rack is less than ideal; this one has definitely got me thinking.
