Built this easel for my wife. She needed an easel that could colapse and make it easy to bring around. Made of pine and the knobs are made of 1/2 inch ply. Fun project and built for 50 bucks. When collapsed its 24 by 34

Really nice.
I need to make one along those lines, or exactly that version. What are the dimensions when yours is fully collapsed and folded up? Could you post a pic of it all folded for transport?

thanks

Thanks back to you. It is a great looking easel. I have to make myself one one, so that now goes on the list-without-end!

I agree. That’s why I put it on my list-without-end, and not just something to go knock out quickly!

Thanks fellas I really appreciate the kind words. Was a fun build and a head scratcher at times because I built it on the fly and we all know what happens when we build like that!! End up bobbing and weaving through things that creep up! Thanks again boys!
