This is a design I found in an old UK woodworking magazine “WOOD”
Its made of Cherry and this one is 14” high, makes an elegant, prestigious gift
This is a nice way to show your favourite photograph (mine usually has a photo of my daughter age 3)
If anyone is interested I can furnish more detail.

Beautiful stand Gerard. I especially like the way you did those dovetails. The finish is really outstanding too. A great gift.

Thank you RJ, I’m pleased that you want to make an easel but be careful. I made a mistake and placed the 2 pieces (called the canvas rest and the canvas holder in the plan) the wrong way round. They should be placed so that they can hold any thickness of frame , i.e. open at the FRONT. I didn’t bother fixing it as I only wanted it to hold a glass sandwiched photo as shown, but if you want it to hold wider frames you’d better follow the plan:
If anything is not clear E-mail me. Congratulations again ( I think to some extent you were beaten by a Natural Disaster)

RJ I changed the connection of the spreader to the front legs, I think this method is easier and prettier (I think a half-dovetail is one of the greatest inventions in carpentry).

PS I hope you will post your version if you make it.
