A Suggestion for Hanging Large Charts

This page created 27 Jul 2001; reformatted 20 Jan 2002

 

Once you have a nice three by five foot wall chart, how do you hang it on the wall with more style than a couple of nails or lots of tape? And if it's a gift, not only does appearance matter, but transporting or shipping can be a concern. I've found a simple way to make stretchers for the top and bottom of the chart that allow it to hang nicely, and still allow the chart to be rolled for storage or shipped in a standard mailing tube.

If you have woodworking tools, it only takes an hour or two to make a pair, other than the finish. If woodworking isn't your thing, I would think any woodworking shop could turn out a set or two for a reasonable price.
