I made this easel for my artistic wife. Wood used is poplar and maple. Fairly simple project, after I figured out how to make the box movable up and down on the converging rails. Finish is just clear store-bought shellac.
(I have no idea why the pictures downloaded side ways?)

Good work … kudos on the movable box!

As to the photos … perhaps this will help … Uploading Photos ... A Tutorial

That’s really very well thought out and executed. Woodworking projects can provide utility for other hobbies too. She’ll surely enjoy using that easel :)

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I am only a “weekend warrior” and in a process of setting up my little garage shop. Also an avid reader of this website, which is an excellent source of ideas and know-hows for me.
And I promise I will learn how to download photos correctly :) Thank you Ron Aylor!!!!!!!
