This is an idea I had to store wet and dry canvases in my small studio. I had canvases all over the house above every door, wherever there was a piece of trim. I started with a wire shelf rack you can buy at most large "blue or orange brand" hardware stores, and assemble at home. They are very strong and will hold a lot of weight. I added some casters which go with it. From there proceed as follows:
Add shelves made of pegboard, cut to fit the wire shelves. I used a circular saw and jigsaw. I made sure all the pegholes in each shelf would line up in the end by cutting them all at once with a few dowels keeping them aligned.
Here I cut the corners of the pegboard with a jigsaw to fit around the poles.
Then I lay the shelf on its side and began running dowels through from top to bottom.
Here's a shot of the pegboard shelf, its about 16 inches by 36 inches
The pegboard I used works with 1/4 inch dowels. The dowels are held by friction in the pegholes, there's no glue. I cut some of the dowels with a simple hand-held mitre saw.
Here's the finished product loaded up with canvas panels. I put more dowels at the top for my little canvases.
Here's a scale figure, yours truly.... I am an architect by day, and paint on weekends mostly.
Comments are welcome.
