One of my long-time hobbies is to paint miniature figurines for table-top wargames. Through the years, I have amassed quite a collection of paint colors during my years in this hobby. I have struggled to find a way to organize those paints in a way that will make the paint bottles easy to reach while sitting at my workbench. I currently store them in a tool box and get out the colors that I want to use for that day's painting. I find that the bottles often clutter up my workspace because I don't put them back into the toolbox. After knocking a few bottles over at the worst possible moment during the course of painting a model, I decided that a change was needed. I have wanted to build a hobby paints rack for some time, hopefully to eliminate much of this disorganization in the workspace.
