Convertible Wall Easel #3: Framing the table and canvas supports

02-23-2017 09:45 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 0 comments »

Recap. This is an artists easel that is mounted on a wall and can convert to vertical to stand up while oil painting or horizontal to sit down (or stand) while water color painting. Someone asked, “why do you have to sit down to paint in watercolor?”. Well, it’s just paper not a canvas, and you often use it pretty wet so it would run. Sometimes it’s very wet. Then it’s actually called ‘wet on wet’ painting..Here is the easel with the table framed a...

Convertible Wall Easel #2: Assembly

02-22-2017 11:05 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

Remember from the first installment, this is a convertible wall easel. It can be used vertically for oil painting or turned into a desk for watercolor painting. All will become clearer nearer the bottom of this blog when assembly begins. Here are the holes where the support rods and bearing will install from. It’s the top of the easel. .I thought I’d glue the top up to be ready to work on later. It will have a cherry border and plexiglass top when finished. .Lots of suppo...

Convertible Wall Easel #1: Wall Rails

02-18-2017 07:03 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

This is an odd item. I paint. The mediums I use are Oil and sometimes watercolor. When painting with oil you usually stand in front of an easel that is vertical. When using water colors, you usually paint at a table as the paper is often wet. Sometimes very wet so you paint with the paper horizontal. Thus, I decided to make an easel that is usable in both the vertical and horizontal mode. I also wanted one that was attached to the wall and made as to not be as conspicuous as a large artist ea...

H-Frame Easel out of 2X4's #1: H-frame Easel - designed on the fly

04-15-2013 12:11 AM by luckysawdust | 2 comments »

My wife is an artist, and has had need of an Easel from which to work in order to keep in practice—only, her training is in the style of the ‘Old Masters’—from the French Academy, which has seen a bit of a resurgence in our modern day. All of this means, she wanted an easel that was perfectly vertical, with a tray, and a top-clamp (I honestly don’t know what else to call it, it’s my own term) that were vertically adjustable. So, like with most woodwork...

First steps

12-19-2009 02:28 PM by David Craig | 4 comments »

I started working with wood a couple years ago. My job gets pretty demanding and I haven’t had much time in the shop since my initial beginnings. My wood hoard mostly consists of boards from things I have taken down and apart since I purchased my home. I have never been much for throwing items away. I bought a planer a couple months ago so will start making some trips to a sawmill in Chesaning for some better wood for projects. In the interim, I am getting back to some woodworking promi...
