Save money by making your own floating wall mounting blocks for aluminum metal printsThe 2014 Art Fair season is almost here, and I'm making last minute preparations. I ordered a number of aluminum metal prints to add to my collection, but didn't order them with mounting blocks. It adds an additional ~$8.50 per metal print depending on vendor, so I decided to try and save some money by making my own floating wall mounting blocks. I already have a plunge router, so all I really needed was the router bit, template, and template guide.
