    it's pretty simple. i just built a box out of 2x4's and put plywood on the top and bottom. the plywood on the top overhangs a little. home depot has table legs for like $7 a piece so i just attached those. i drilled a big hole in the bottom to attach an old vacuum cleaner i had around the house. the top i covered with formica (easy to clean up, just wipe it down!). you just cover the plywood in contact cement and lay it on there. then i drilled a grid of 1/16" holes in it and that was pretty much it. add jiffy clamps and a hook in the ceiling for a countersink and you're set.

    building it was a lot easier than i thought it would be.


    i forgot to add that now i need to get rid of all these prints, anyone want to trade or buy one ? signed and numbered edition of 18! haha.
