*Notices: 1. If you purchase more than 1 paint rack, combined shipping now is free up to 3 racks! If you wanted to order more, let me know Thanks. 2. The racks no longer have the large logo on the sides. Also, my racks with paint in them are darker because I sealed them with polyurethane.
Hey, before we get started, THIS is important! Get those paints out!! These fair maidens are patiently hoping inside a plastic or cardboard box to be chosen for the next project. If they are visible in front of you, they have hope! They can be happy for the others that you chose and will enjoy watching your skills given to those "chosen" paints that get a place on stage! Each paint cost over $3 each. Your paints/stains/inks are a huge investment into your hobby as a mini painter so keep all of them visible for for possible use.
(Okay, here we go.) WELCOME!
This listing is for 1 Typhoon paint rack made of 3mm Baltic birch plywood (again, NO MDF ) which is laser cut here in the USA, and designed to be used with multiple brands of paint dropper bottles Including brands such as, Reaper, Vallejo, Army painter, Scale75 and ANY 17ml paint dropper bottle measuring approximately 1 inch or 26mm or less in diameter. All branded dropper bottles for this hobby are this size. (At least all that I know of)
Hmm.. Conception for this design began when I realized that the current paint racks on the market take up lots of room and looked cool but with poorly utilized paint storage space. My paint racks are designed to maximize the space available in front of you so that you can put all of your paints on your tabletop paint station. As you can see in photos above, there are 10 shelves consisting of 2 types of shelves. Shelf A has 8 holes and shelf B has 7 holes. The 10 shelves are offset every other one and are open at the front to get superb visibility of each paint bottle's color and number(see close up photos).
The Typhoon paint racks are 11.5 inches wide and store 75 paints per rack. In my case, after several years of miniature painting, I have a large number of paints and I wanted them all right in front of me. So, I assembled 3 racks and when placed side by side, they take up less than 3 ft in width and store 225 paint bottles right in front of me. (Please see photo 7 of my paint station with the yardstick at the bottom.) Oh, pearl of suggestion: *Place a drop of paint on the top of your dropper bottle lid to show the paint color inside.* No more searching through plastic paint cases for a stored paints!
The full dimensions are: 11.5" wide x 10" deep x 12.5" tall. You can personalize your rack by stain, paint, clear urethane, or just as is. (This is what I did and why my racks with paint bottles in them look a little darker because of the urethane coat I applied.) . It is layered grained wood cut by laser so I just wanted you to know they may vary minimally so it won't be an issue. Simply assemble as shown in photos with the best side face up, and any glue will work, but my recommendation for assembly basic wood glue if you have the patience, however, I prefer cyanoacrylate of any type ( Super glue, Zap ) and use some zip kicker afterwards. Boom, 5 seconds, instant bond.
*So, after looking at the photos and reading the above, and you are interested in putting all of your paints in front of you, try my Typhoon paint racks. I have so much pride in the design and quality of the material that If you don't like them, put them back into the package and send them right back for a FULL REFUND!!
NOTICE! 1. I also have some citadel pots that I want to put out as well but my design isn't ready yet. Send me a message and let me know if there is enough interest in me making a shelf for paint pots.
2. I am working on a corner kit which should be available in very early April 2018.
Oh, and don't forget to look at my Typhoon Paint Mixers. . Check out all 3 varieties to see what is best for you. ( Photo number 9-10 above ) . Your paints will never be the same! They are on my website as well. Go ahead, check them out.
Thank you for you time and attention to my products. I hope you will try them.

A very nice system, only small complaint that the panels I got were just slightly too large to go together, had to trim a tiny bit off each shelf, but all in all took no time to assemble. Very happy overall

I love my new paint racks! Took to sanding and staining well and they match my desk perfectly! Small footprint while able to hold my entire paint line.
