This is the first kit sold of my plywood version chevalet. It is going to a couple in California who both want to use it so the 3” adjustability will be fully used. The thing that makes this interesting is the shipping mode. The purchasers are currently on an Alaska cruise and will be stopping in Victoria for the day tomorrow. I will meet them at the cruise ship terminal and we will make our exchange. They plan to keep it in their cabin and need to be able to carry it off the boat when they get to Seattle.
Enter my old Ping carry bag with the two shoulder straps. It was labled for the dump anyway but the straps will do nicely and save my clients’ shoulders in the bargain.
This is the complete kit, actually assembled and tested before shipping. I included a couple of close ups of the assembled chevalet featuring the 65 ply column.
If my American friends will permit the paraphrase, .... A marquetry saw of veneer, by veneer and for veneer.
Thanks for looking
