This was a fun project to take on. I had no written plan, only a one view picture of something relative to this on the internet. I had some scrap pine and went about with my saw, bit/brace and rasp/files to create this table easle for my girlfriends paint by numbers work. She is a huge inspiration in my woodcraft and also a wonderful gift giver, hence the makeshift Peter Follansbee set of Pfeil carving chisels were a welcomed edition to my small shop this past birthday….thanks again for the awesome gift, lol.
Never attempted anything like this with the hinges, angles etc. So I used what I had and before long I had a really nice workpiece. Nice strong fit and holds firm with weight being placed on the dowel as it sits in the handmade teeth.
I morticed out the top and placed in the sliding top piece for larger projects to clamp in. Everything was handtools, with a little electric drilling here and there for the bolts (St. Roy, please cover your eyes and ears…lol), otherwise the brace and bit was in use.
Thanks again to all my friends out there for stopping by and taking a look.
Be well and enjoy creating something!
