Madog Barfog Posted December 26, 2018 Share Posted December 26, 2018 I saw a paint booth pic on Imgur and it inspired me. I've been wanting paint racks for a while. Couple hundred paints in 4 drawers suck. Design goals: upright paint racks that hold paints in one layer. No labels required; paint positions will change as I add/remove triads and mix in some VMC bottles. Must hold RMS and Vallejo bottles (they're essentially the same size). Cheap - I have a $25 Christmas gift to work with. Quality isn't an issue, I'm fine using lauan (spelling?) floor covering, scraps, etc. Must hold 200 bottles and be expandable (I'm thinking of a couple of racks or more). I'll be using these on my paint table, so don't want them to take a lot of room. Top up storage is fine, as long as I can see what's in the bottles. I often put a drop of paint on top of the cap anyway. Potentially useful tools I have: cheap table saw drill press Dremel with router attachment (I've never used the attachment) basic hand tools wood glue I'm fine with them looking super cheap - exposed screws, glue seams, etc. Functionality is far more importance than quality looks. I'm sure this has been done before, so you are welcome to link to your own projects/YouTube videos/whatever. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
