I was asked to make an easel for an art student, who goes to Pratt Univ.. I made it from hard maple and man was that a learning experience. That is some really Hard wood, I started with some bed rails that I ripped to size, the center tall support has a dovetail shape and the hold down at the top and the bottom shelf have the opposite mating surface. I countersunk some t nuts from the back and screwed them in to hold securely. Then flattened the head end of some all thread bolts and used a nut backed onto the rear of the star knobs. Simply little brass chain and some hardware to set the angle.
Thats my dog Max in the pic he licked it, LOL
