Recently I built a desk top art easel for my mother for Christmas, She requested one from Santa, but since he is busy making toys for all the boys and girls, the task was up to me.
This Easel is a great gift for the artist in your life. A fun build and a beautiful piece. The easel is made of Walnut and Oak it features two trays which can hold all of your paint supplies, as well as a paint pallet made from birch. The brass hardware and Oak Splines really set this piece off.
This box was finished with 3 coats of Tung Oil Finish followed by 2 coats of Paste Wax. Buffed to a semi or satin finish. for a full instructional on building this box, please see my videos in my How to build a Desktop Easel blog
