Here’s yet another educational screenprinting video in which we take another look at my do it yourself screen drying rack. If you recall years ago we made this same drying box with black corrugated plastic and gaffers tape. In this video I show you the rebirth of the same drying box remade with hard wood materials for a more permanent build.
The dry box is built pretty much exactly the same as far as the panels, light baffles and venting but I give you the latest rundown on the minor modifications I made while rebuilding this with the luan material. My brother did the entire rebuild at his house following the same format we originally did so you can use the original video in order to plan the build with Coroplast or luan wood materials. Either way all you need is the screen rack and that makes it pretty easy to build your own light safe screen drying rack without spending a fortune. This unit cost about $400 to build including the purchase of the screen rack. Compared to commercially made screen drying boxes that is a great deal. You can watch the original build video here:
