This is one of my older projects. It’s a present for my cousin made for her birthday. She made the painting. I ask her to give me the picture to show to a friend, but I intend to take measurement for easel. It’s a big surprise for her when I return the picture, but along with the easel.

It’s made from poplar and finished with lacquer and canola oil.
The last picture is the inspiration source, found on the internet.

beautifull work ,
i almost bought one once ,
but it only had one leg ,
and kept falling over .
so i decided to become a carpenter instead !

The easel looks great and your cousin appears to be a fine artist. The painting is great as well. I hope she makes great use of it.

I would like to make adjustable legs like the ones on your easel. I cannot see enough
detail in the pictures to understand how the legs telescope. Can you explain? Thanks.
