If you have one in your area I'd say go pick one up. It's a lot cheaper and easier. It works great whenever I have to carry my prints anywhere.
how many artwork can it hold and what size is it?
I think the diameter is about 4 inches. The length can be extended and locked in with a notch like a telescope tube so you can pretty much fit anything in there. I would normally carry 5-6 prints in there to be safe but it could definitely fit more. I don't have a picture of mine but it's definitely worth it.
*ahem* You could buy a bazooka carrying tube from me, paperartcollector.
Just saw your bazooka thread, emac. Top notch. I did something similar before flatstock (due to the threatening skies) in about 20 minutes. Didn't have much on hand, so I used an old bicycle inner tube for a carrying strap and some old end caps for, well, end caps. I plan to finish it off similar to yours and had been wondering how to attach the strap, so I might just steal your zip tie idea
So, if I can do this w/ stuff laying around before stepping out the door, y'all certainly have time to run to a big box, get some lightweight 4" PVC (which you should be shipping in anyway
), and whip one of these bad boys up.
