I'm delighted by the response to my new organization for my markers from everyone in my classes Saturday June 11. I know that some of you (Kris & Sharle!!!) are impatient (much like myself) and want to make this sooner rather than later. For anyone else, I will gladly schedule a time after a Copic class for us to make these as a group if you order your case through the store.
I also let a few ladies know that I would post pictures of the items needed to do this. Here it is. I was able to get the labels for both the square dowel rod and florescent light grid in the photo. I have enough grid left for 1 of the 2 pieces needed for a box so you may want to see about pitching in with 2 other people and reduce your cost. :)
You'll want to count over 19 full squares and then up 19 full squares. Mark just after that 19th square so you make sure to cut in a straight line on both sides. I just used a hand cutting tool with no problems whatsoever. I didn't even bother to smooth the edges either as I don't even see them let alone come in contact with them. I used a miter box & saw to cut 4 5" pieces of the dowel and used foam squares to hold the dowels snugly into the bottom grid. The top grid rested on foam squares I adhered to the four sides of the dowels. Easy peasy! Lemon squeezy!
