We have a need for a pad or a whiteboard for tomorrow’s presentation at our guild meeting. I managed to get an easel from school but there was no way to hold the pad on it for the presenter. I made this board to fit a 17×20 pad. It is made from 5/8” and 3/16” plywood. The first thing I had to do was make a board to fit over the easel that would slide down and catch the legs of the easel. It had to have the opening cut tapered at 16 degrees .Then I cut the thin plywood to fit the pad and made a shelf on the bottom for markers.

It is finished with shellac so it will clean easily
