My son had an old desk top easel he needed repaired and after fixing it i thought i would copy the design and build a few with the scrap oak cut offs i had in a bin.
The foot print is 10.75” wide x 12.5” deep and it’s 27” high
All elements are adjustable and it’s the first time I have tried mortise and tenon joints
The original mass produced easel had odd size #10×32 brass carriage bolts so after searching for awhile I settled on #10×24 zinc and stainless steel hardware.
After a fine grit sanding i applied a natural Danish Oil Finish
One is going to a co-worker who gave me the old maple table top for my wife’s studio (last project) and the other three are going to a hospital program where my wife and son volunteer to teach art lessons.
