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?)

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!!!!!!!
