My daughter teaches high school art and does some studio work and asked me to make an art easel for her. After a little research and combining the best of a couple of plans I built her a folding easel that is very functional and portable.

Probably one of the most moving gifts I ever recieved was an easle my dad built for me during my brief stint airbrushing t-shirts in Branson, MO.

It was a real shocker, as Dad didn’t talk a whole lot, and it really made an impression on me that he took the time to build something for me out of the blue like that.

He passed away in ‘92, but I still have that easel. Even though it’s just pine 1×2s, money couldn’t buy it .
