My son wanted to make something for his Mom. Realizing Mom likes to paint with both acrylic and oils, she wanted a pallet for her painting. Most of her painting is done at the table sitting, hence no need for a big painting pallet like Bob Ross. The pallet itself is just plexiglass.
He did all the measuring, most of the cutting, and virtually all of the finish work. We started with Red Oak, used a Golden Oak stain, then added a little poly. The bolts were added so it would fold away for storage. I didn’t think his first project turned out too bad. The legs are a little under 9” long, and the risers are 5” high. The top of the risers and the bottom of the plexiglass were both cut at a 30° angle.
He was a very proud little 9 year old to then give this to his mom.
