AN INEXPENSIVE METHOD FOR CONSTRUCTING STORAGE RACKS FOR HANGING ARTIFACTS

DAVID LEE COLGLAZIER



1 INTRODUCTION

Are you looking for an inexpensive way to construct some vertical storage racks on which to hang artifacts? I have a method using wire fencing, black iron plumbing pipe, stainless steel hose clamps and some readily available aluminum-magnesium (Al-Mg) fittings. I have created a number of large panels of metal fencing grids upon which I have hung framed items and flat artifacts. If you can hang something on a normal wall, it can be hung on these racks.
