Description

The Painter’s Pyramid elevates your project off the work surface so you can apply finish to both sides of a woodworking project without waiting.

WOOD magazine review

Finish two sides without the wait

Review Summary

Unless I’m applying a fast-dry finish like lacquer, things come to a grinding halt when I have to wait for one side of a project to dry before coating the other. For slower-drying finishes, such as polyurethane, Painter’s Pyramids allow me to apply finish (or paint) on the less-seen side first, wait a couple of minutes, and then simply flip it over and do the “good” side while the first is still wet. These handy plastic gizmos leave only a pinhole-sized dimple that’s easy to rub out.
They’re surprisingly stout for their size and don’t tip over when I place something on them. When not being used they nest neatly out of the way. —Tested by Kevin Boyle

purchase a lot

Review Summary

These things work great for finishing, since the points are small but not sharp they only leave a small mark that you can rub out. I also like the fact that they are made of plastic so you can easily remove any finish that may stick to the point so it won't possibly spoil or stick to the next surface you use them on. Another simple,useful, why didn't I think of that invention.

I bought these on sale and they have been my most inexpensive helpful assistant when painting or finshing projects. They provide the support I need to keep my projects off the dropcloth or bench area.
