This is not a brand new project. I submitted it, because of a request by MsDebbieP for the CS1 Kitchen challenge.

I was out in the shop one day, & thought to myself, what can I make?

I said, how about making a recipe holder easel for Barb’s kitchen.

So I dug out some pieces of wood from my scrap bin, & proceeded with the project.

I didn’t have a plan, but I knew what I wanted it to look like,

so the first thing I made was the main spindle post.

Then I made the base. I kept at it until I had the finished product.

The material is Pine from my scrap bin.

I used Walnut Watco Danish Oil Finish.

The base is 6 inches, total height is 18 inches, & the easel is 8 inches wide.

Here are some different views of it.

The spindles of the easel are made to match the spindles in the door panel above the kitchen range.

Really cool! I like how it matches the spindles above the range. I bet you get to pick the recipes it holds also. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful idea, Dick, raising that up high would make it much easier to read, especially for Sherie who forgets to put on her glasses, and doesn’t know where they are anyway.

It’s nice; I like the fact you matched the unit over the range.

Excellent work as always Dick. Matching the spindles was a great touch. You know, if either of you plays an instrument this would work great as a music stand also. Beautiful and unique as always Dick and thanks for posting it along with the other pics.
