04/13/2009: "New Canvase Storage Unit!"
So, below is the canvas storage unit that Aaron built for me after I loaded it up with paintings, new canvases, and frames. I had a lot more stuff than either of us realized! My studio seems twice as big now that I don't have to crawl over heaps of precariously stacked paintings in order to get to my chair.
The top unit stores canvases 30"x40", which is as big as I paint these days.
The middle unit stores canvases 24"x"30 and 24"x36".
The second from the bottom stores canvases 18"x24" and 16"x20".
The bottom stores 14"x18" and smaller.
In the previous entry there are a couple photos that show it empty so you can see how it was built. It only took him a couple of hours. I think he used a sheet of plywood, 3 2x4s, and 1 1x2. Then he used wood screws and wood glue and I think that's it. I know it cost under a hundred dollars to make.
This thread on Wet Canvas shows how to make a cheap storage rack for wet canvases, if anyone is interested.
