Work continues on the artist stand. I have a nice base built, and am working on the legs for the tables. I have managed to make the sliding dovetail joints for the legs, so they are now adjustable. Next step, attach the legs to the base and then brace them together. After that, drill holes for the height adjustments.

I still need to determine how I will attach the tables to their respective legs. One will be easy, since it is a fixed table. The second will be more interesting, as it needs to tilt to hold a canvas. After that, the assembly should go smoothly.

Then there is that all important finish. Since this is for an artist, I will have to make the finish durable when exposed to the various paint cleaning chemicals. It looks like polyurethane varnish will be the best bet. While I prefer shellac, it will not hold up to the chemicals. Lacquer will probably be the same way.

Oh yes, there is still the matter of color….
