Easel I made for my wife…......stopped all projects and cobbled this together to keep her happy….......It is adjustable for different size pictures and has a tray in front for paints and brushes….....Was fun to build…....As I said before I’m retired in Costa Rica and am limited to resources…....I bought 2 wet, rough sawn, pine boards about 1”X3”X10’ for about $4.00 and had to rip them in half with a jigsa….Can’t seem to find any dry lumber at any reasonable price…....I mean like $20.00 a board if dry…...Outrageous….....Anyway it turned out O.K. and she’s very happy to have an easel to paint her pictures on….....The picture she painted is on banana paper and is a Costa Rican Poisonous Dart frog…..Very nice I think…......

-- Let's see......what can I use this for?
