The wife of a former colleague started a teaching career a month or so ago after staying at home to raise three kids until they were all old enough to go to school. She was in need of a dual purpose easel. One side is a dry-erase whiteboard the other is a flip chart paper pad holder. The design is not mine. I simply copied from a picture she provided. The unit can be disassembled into two parts for easy transportation: A top-hinged A-frame and a marker holder/bookshelf. It stands on swiveling and locking casters, a feature asked for by the teacher. The legs end with a foot that is about 2” square so the casters could be mounted properly. All edges have a 1/16” bevel so little hands or other body parts are not injured during a collision…which will happen I am sure. Made out of solid pine (except for the two panels) and finished with sprayed shellac (SealCoat). The two sides of the A-frame are 70” long x 28 1/2” wide and the angle between them is 26 degrees. The shelf projects about 4” from the face of the A-frame and is located 46” down from the top. The casters add about 2 1/2” in height.
