  1. Easel for my wife

    I made this easel for my artistic wife. Wood used is poplar and maple. Fairly simple project, after I figured out how to make the box movable up and down on the converging rails. Finish is just clear store-bought shellac. (I have no idea why the pictures downloaded side ways?)
  2. Two sided blackboard easel

    I made this chalkboard easel using three 1×3 8-foot dimensional pine boards, along with 1/4 inch luan plywood which is very smooth. Then I painted the plywood with primer and two coats of blackboard paint. The pine makes it lighter and more easy to carry. It is 4 feet high by 2 feet wide...

  5. Convertible Painters easel

    I blogged the construction of most of this easel here I used to have a large bulky artists easel. When I started to renovate the place years ago I had in mind a convertible wall easel.

  6. Easel

    It's has been a while since I've done anything in the shop, but I finally got around to finishing this easel. It was requested by the church to hold a picture up about 3' off the floor. It is only 4' tall. It can fold up flat. Still need to put a finish on it. The only thing, I'm unable to...
  7. Kids Easel

    Made this for the kids two Christmases ago and it still gets plenty of use. I used white board in the frame on one side for dry erase markers and left the other side with just a plywood panel to support a pad or roll of paper for painting. Since these pics I added a roll of paper on the top...

  9. Needed an Easel ASAP!

    My neighbors needed an easel for a party at the clubhouse today. I grabbed what I could scrounge up and came up with this. It is just pine. I added removable dowels so that they can have multiple options for display height/area, a magnet I found to hold the leg closed when moving/storing, and...

  12. Easel with tilt

    I like to paint on canvas, and as such I've made a few easels over the years. I finally like this one, because it not only allows me to tilt the whole easel forward and back (using the rear support knobs) but lets me tilt the canvas support frame so that the top of the canvas comes toward me...

    Built 15 easels for a painting seminar at the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art in Wausau, WI. Constructed out of birch plywood and 2×4s.

    I built this for my eight-year old granddaughter. It's an easel that has a blackboard on the back and a double-sided white dry-erase board that pulls down from the front. I included two drawers for her to store markers and chalk. The project is made from poplar. It's 34" wide by 48" high by...
  15. Quick and Simple Easel

    First project I've gotten around to posting on LJ - more coming, I promise! My wife does makeup, and was looking for an Easel on which to practice both her traditional and airbrush makeup (basically, it's a really small HVLP sprayer for makeup application). So I whipped this one up with poplar...
  16. Turner's Easel

    Working in a small shop necessitates space conservation and tooling mobility. Since acquiring a lathe last July, the shop was adjusted to accommodate the machine along with an array of accessories. A solution to the accumulation of lathe tools required some thought. How to provide ease of use...

    Used my Inventables Xcarve CNC machine to carve and paint a sign for a local business, Shaggy Tails Pet Salon. They provided the logo and information and i turned it into a file using Vcarve and Easel that my Xcarve could cut. Used 3/4" plywood to make the sign and painted it with an exterior...

  19. Desktop Painting Easel

    This is direct copy of a product that I've seen on the web. My wife has gotten into acrylics lately and she was painting with the canvas flat on the table. I used some old 2 and 3 foot sections of 2×4 (from old shop furniture) for all of the easel parts and some 16" plywood cutoffs for the box...

    I have a friend with an increasing level of disability. An artist, she wanted an easel that would allow her to sit and/or stand, dependent on her available strength. Her main requirement was for use of the KISS principle, with no winding handles but retaining full adjustability. I don't know...
