Wow, it’s been over three years since I posted a project to LumberJocks. Man, how time flies when you move across the country, start a family, and generally just get side tracked. I’ve certainly been playing in the shop but with my recent projects I’ve either not felt like posting them or just never got around to putting in the effort. However, as soon as I finished this project I knew I wanted to share it in hopes of getting back into the wonderful LJ community.

I remember when I first saw The WoodWhisperer’s Woodworkers Fighting Cancer 2013 project I knew I wanted to build one someday. A little less than a year later I had a reason to, but figured I’d better wait a couple years until she was old enough to use it.

The build itself is straight forward and the only change I made to the plans was to use my Incra Box Joint Jig for the tray joinery instead of rabbits. One side is a dry erase board while the other is a chalkboard. In the center is a dowel that holds a 24” roll of paper than can be pulled over the dry erase side and is held by a couple cleats.

The wood is ribbon Sapele which was wonderful to work with. The easel is almost made entirely out of a single board. I say almost because a couple early mistakes required me to remake some parts out of the spare board I purchased. The two boards where close enough that I doubt most people would even notice.

Finished with three coats of satin Arm-R-Seal and buffed with wax.

Thanks for looking!
