Prop Storage: Great Walls of Fire

Wall 1Prop storage – an ongoing battle of hooks, nails, drills, hammers, closets, and corners. Here’s a way to store your props with a relatively small footprint, while displaying them like the works of art they are!

Materialsbuild 1
Get ready for another hardware store trip, and start learning the employees’ names (not important for your build but it’ll make them smile, and that doesn’t cost you a thing!) You’ll need:

– 1x – pegboard sheet (4’x4′, have it cut in half to do a door-sized prop wall)
– 2x – 2″x1″ runners – you’ll need two per wall
– Screws – Long enough to hold your runners to the wall
– Nails – Long enough to hold your pegboard to the runners
– Pegboard hooks galore
– Handheld level

  Build 21. Drive a nail into your surface at the height you want  your Build 3pegboard hung at – hang your pegboard from that  nail near the center, and make sure it’s level – mark  across the top of theboard and all corners, so you have  an outline for where your board is level

2. Drive a screw through the top corner of your runner,  pinning it into the corner of your outline. Use your level  to make sure it’s vertical, then pin the bottom down  with a second screw. Add one or two more along the  length of your runner

3. Lather, rinse, repeat for the second runner.

4. Nail your pegboard to the runners. Seriously. Just  nail it up there.



Now throw Build 5some sticks on some Build 4hooks and show your houseguests what priorities really are!

About the Author:

Since he was old enough to hold a hammer, Jeremy has been building things (and trying to contact roll the hammer). HE alternates between barricading himself in his workshop for days on end making props, and going missing for days on end spinning them, and has amassed a collection of flow objects that is rapidly devouring his apartment. Jeremy is a spin-jam organizer in Columbus, Ohio, where he is working to help develop the object manipulation community. Since childhood, Jeremy has had a habit of spinning anything he could get his hands on, but it wasn't until 2014 that he found the flow arts community and began to develop props specifically for performance. Jeremy is a firm believer in open source, and will be providing tutorials, tips and tricks, product reviews, and how-to's on all things flow.
