Wet Painting Carriers

I enjoy building things out of simple materials like foam core board, so I thought I'd give it a shot to make some wet painting carriers out of a sheet of lightweight corrugated plastic similar to the ones made by one of the artist supply companies. I prefer to paint on 8x10 panels, and made mine to fit that size. I used 1/4" square balsa wood dowels to create slots to hold the panels. I made the first one big enough to hold 10 wet paintings. I still had a piece leftover to make another that will hold 4 wet paintings. I tried to make one more out of the scrap leftovers, but because of the way the channels of the corrugated plastic ran, it didn't work out.

Really neat ... and the savings of not having to purchase a ready made panel carrier has to be a great incentive to build your own too.
