Hey!

Just wanted to share my DIY for a paint rack, this one holds 160+ pots of tamiya, and all you need is a 4x4 sheet of 1/4 inch plywood or MDF.

I actually made that one out of packedging meterial i was supposed to trow out at work :p

-1st step, cut your 4x4 sheet in half, then use one half to make your shelfs.
-mesure the size of paint container you want to put in it (I went 1.5'' for Tamiya) and cut 12 stripes out of 1 half of materiel (or 13 if you want to close the ends, wich i didn't

glue 6 of these stripes on your 2nd half like such

The pce i rucuped was only 17'' so I only did 5

you can nail these on but i didn't, i just let them dry for a good 30-45 min with weights

then take the other 6 stripes and glue them to the front and secure with finishing nails like such

And there you got it! You can put as many of them as you want end-to-end and the beauty of it, if you're a scrounger like me, IT'S FREE! :eek:

Here's the finished product, sucured to the wall in my shop
