|Various paint stands I have made.|
Threes of these are made from BC plywood. Not my favorite. BC ply is seldom flat and when you are drilling nearly all the way through it breaks through. The smaller one has masonite glued to the bottom because of this.
The stand on the front right is MDF. Its heavy and flat, drills easy and its dirt cheap.
I use 1/4 inch dowels that I sharpen on one end. to hold everything. Sharpening the dowles let me use them for ay size hole up to 1/4 inch, I like to use 4 inch dowels. I can use shorter ones but I find the inserting short dowels in the holes is difficult in tight quarters.

I made a paint stand on a lazy susan but so far I haven't found it any more useful than the regular ones.

I started with 1/4 in holes but soon discovered that these were to tight. If you make one of these drill the holes 1/64 or 1/32 inch larger. I just took the next larger bit iin the drill index.
