Art easel built with laminated hard maple legs and adjustable 1” thick Baltic Birch top which swivels 180 degrees. The top is lockable in 10 degree increments. The most difficult part of the process was clamping and bending the maple strips to a 8 1/2 inch radius. Each leg glue-up was left overnight to cure. The top swivels on turned maple pins. Thanks for browsing.

Interesting. So you had to clamp and reset the clamps many times as the throw of the clam is small compared to the space to cover. I am looking at something similar, but thinking about a track so the to forms move together square.

Thanks for the comment. Actually I never thought about making a track so that the forms move together. Perhaps if I was doing more of these types of bends I would take the time to make tracks.

Your shop must be in a dedicated outbuilding. The moulding in your home says 1920’s but the cement of your shop floor says recent.

I miss my art board. I cut my teeth as a draftsman long ago and grew up in the era of “if you want to design it, you start with paper”. No days I use a large monitor and various graphical programs. I still have all my drawing tools and use them from time to time.

The house is more recent then the shop—I built the house in a craftsman style in 2010 with wainscotting throughout the main entrance and oak herringbone floors. I placed the concrete in the shop around 2001.
