“Paint easier. Paint smarter. Paint without the wait!” The makers of Painter’s Pyramid claim their product will save you time and effort, and we found much truth in this claim. The simple plastic devices allow you to paint one side of a workpiece immediately after the other without having to wait for the fresh paint to dry. They’re non-stick and non-marring, and they can even handle large workpieces weighing up to 200 pounds!
To save time and effort, you paint one surface of your project as you normally would, place the workpiece face down on four or more Painter’s Pyramids, and then move on to the sides and opposite surface. The pyramids resist paints and solvents, to ensure that your freshly painted surfaces remain intact.
The 2-1/2″ pyramids rest evenly and stably on most surfaces, and you can secure them to unconventional work surfaces such as sawhorses using the holes in the sides of the Painter’s Pyramid. The rounded tips help prevent gouging and denting.
Many woodworking retailers sell Painter’s Pyramids in packs of ten. You can also purchase standard packs or mini-packs of four in the color of your choice directly from the manufacturer. The manufacturer is also running a “buy three sets, get one free” promotion, if you’re looking to purchase in bulk. Standard packs cost $6 to $7, with mini-packs selling for $3.50.
