Storing vinyl rolls in a dry, clean space is imperative to keep your vinyl rolls usuable for your future crafting.
Vinyl storage racks for rolls and sheets keep the rolls perfectly safe and ensure optimal conditions for the materials.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on a storage rack for your vinyl rolls. You can make a DIY rack for vinyl roll storage at home.
This article will teach you how to build a rack to store your vinyl sheets and rolls.
Materials Required for DIY Vinyl Storage
Right off the bat, you will need two 14-inch and two 43-inch pine boards.
Once you have gotten the right size boards, use the sandpaper to smoothen the surface.
Following that, you need to create holes to fit the wood dowels.
To drill the holes, you will want to mark the place where the holes are to be drilled. You will also need to find the middle point of the width.
Upon finding the center of the width, make several similar marks for holes with the same distance between them.
Once you are done with the marking, start drilling the holes.
Afterwards, you need to put the whole thing together. For that, you will need a hammer, nails, and wood glue.
Now, that you have built the frame, it’s time to make it look nice. You have to use sandpaper again to smoothen the rough areas around the holes. Afterwards, remove the particles and get the frame prepared for paint.
Now find a suitable place for the frame to hang. You can hang it on your wall or any place that’s easily accessible and won’t get in your way. You will need to drill some nails into the wall.
The rack is ready for storing rolls. However, it can’t be yet used to keep sheets. For that, you will need a cascading wall organizer.
Finding a cascading wall organizer shouldn’t be difficult. Just go to Amazon, and get one that looks right to you.
To install the cascading wall organizers, you will need to put wood dowels in the lowermost slots.
Use the elastic attached to the wall organizer to place it into the rack.
But you still need to secure the wall organizer.
For that, you will need to drill another hole into the wall. If you are opposed to the idea of too many holes into your wall, you could instead use an ‘S’ hook to attach it to the rack.
After securing the wall organizer, you can fill it up with vinyl sheets.
To store the rolls, you need to place wood dowels into the uppermost holes.
The more dowels you place, the more rolls you can store.
I’d suggest that you keep at least seven dowels for keeping rolls.
Hang the rolls downwards so you can cut the rolls without removing them from the dowels.
In addition, you will be able to easily see where’s the cut is. That way, you won’t have to remove the vinyl papers until the roll is finished.
A storage rack for vinyl rolls and sheets is a must. Leaving them in direct contact with the ground may make them unusable.
