I just shipped out two more plywood chevalets to Maryland and Texas. If this keeps up I’ll get the hang of it soon.

One of these was the fully assembled, tested, and broken down kit and the other was just the complete parts kit.

This is the first time I’ve actually crated and shipped a plywood model chevalet and it turns out they fit perfectly in a 12” X 12” X 48” box which is a very efficient use of sheet stock. All crated up they weigh in at just over 100 lbs.

Thanks for looking!

Every time I see one of your plywood chevalets I’m amazed that they are made of plywood. Probably the best use of plywood ever!

Yep, I’d love to have one, even if I don’t have the talent to use it, it would make such a neat conversation piece. I bet very few people would know what it is used for.

Great to see more chevalets getting out their. You certainly have played a huge role in bringing the chevalet back into the modern woodworking world.

Just the plywood parts Joe and I’m not doing it. I have a friend who has a very large machine. I’m not much of a CNC guy myself. :-)
