New Project Model Paint Shelves Available Immediately

Well folks, I just boxed up the last shelf for shipment today and will be sending them all out to their new homes.  Thanks very much for the response with these shelves!  I am happy to be officially releasing the new shelves on the store page and am looking forward to serving those that have already requested the new unit.  Its very fulfilling to know that your interest in my blog has allowed me to create a product that fills a need for the community. 
That said, I'd like to ask for more ideas about what type of shelves YOU would like to see and hopefully I can begin to fill that need as well. 
Here is a sneak peek of the newest product I have been developing for the past year.  You may be seeing this very soon!  These handy little guys are for the airbrush users out there.  I will be making them to support anywhere from 2-6 airbrushes, each with a regulator and gauge.  This manifold will take one standard input from an air compressor and provide regulated air power for each brush.  This effectively means no more brush swapping!  Let me know what you all think about these!  Oh by the way, the final models will be in acrylic and not high polish stainless steel, unless there is a desire for that.

Project Paint Shelf Update

So, there has been a bit of interest in the new shelf.  I also posted this on Dakka Dakka and had quite a few PM requests for pricing.  The verdict is out and the prices are as low as I can possibly keep them.  Without Further Adieu:

The 25+ Project Shelf-  Holds 25 of your common hobby paints with room for a few extras should you be using various bottles.  This shelf will cost $40.00 + S&H

The 50+ Project Shelf-  Holds 50 of your common hobby paints with room for a few extras should you be using various bottles.  This shelf will cost $50.00 + S&H

The 60+ Project Shelf-   Holds 60 of your common hobby paints with room for a few extras should you be using various bottles.  This shelf will cost $60.00 + S&H

The way that this is going to work is as follows:  Each shelf can take up to 3 months to be delivered.  I am sorry, but this is a hobby more than a job, and my real job keeps me traveling frequently.  I am not saying that the shelves will take the full 3 months; maybe not even 3 weeks, but please be patient with me and you WILL get your product.  I thought about holding orders until ten units had to be made, and then shipping out all ten, but I think if I am just as honest as I can be with you all, you will in turn be more satisfied. 
Now for shipping:  I cannot possibly guarantee that items shipped overseas will not break!  This is an extremely fragile product and have had many redo's as a result.  Any person out of the Continental US must pay all additional freight, and I load the boxes with fragile stickers and whatnot, but I am not guaranteed by the post office to get reimbursed for my shelf should it arrive broken.  I WILL ship to you overseas if this is acceptable. 
In no way do I want to make it hard for you to get your shelf, however; I am just one guy and the response for these shelves has been extremely overwhelming.  The above disclaimer is essentially all of the growing pains that I have had trying to fulfill orders for you, my wonderful followers!  Thank you for the great response to this product, and I look forward to helping you equip your hobby!

New Year, New Stuff

First things first, I wanted to wish everyone a very happy New Year.

Second, anyone awaiting shipment, there is a huge order going out by the end of the week.  Many apologies for the length of time I have been holding onto these orders, however the Holiday season is a very busy and action packed one as you all may know.  I will include discount coupons with those of you that have been waiting a while. 

Third, as for our birthday contest, I have a winner, but I have yet to post this.  Look for an additional post soon to find out if you were the lucky winner.  I will also send an email out to the winners so you know who you are.

Last, I am interested in getting feedback for one of my newest items.  The idea came for this shelf when I realized that I did not want to put away all of the paints and utility bottles that I was using for a specific project, so I made this shelf to hold all of my project related materials.  They will come in several lengths depending on your need and should hold anywhere from 20-60 bottles of all types.  Please take a look at the pictures and let me know your thoughts on the product.  I will be launching this as soon as I fill all of my current orders. Take a look at the pics below.
