Kat started doing some painting. She is very good at it, i.m.o. She wanted an easel, so, after scoping some out, out there in cyber-space, I got a few ideas. From the scrap and cut-off bins, here’s what I came up with. Some plywood, Walnut, Cherry, and a …................. (yep, I’m gonna say it: “a piece o Ash”) .......Keep it clean out there…. LOL.. It is a bit big, (now,.....be sure to know, I’m speakin bout the easel here), ........... come on, you know that’s funny….... but, ok, let me get my stuff together…... uhh-hummm, anyhoo, in case she paints any larger pics, (I’m sure she will), she’ll be able to do them on here. It is adjustable, and folds flat for easy carrying, and setup. As always, all the looks and/or comments, good/bad/ugly, are appreciated. Now that the Guinness’ have spoken, thnx again. Whew! I’m ok now….?

You sure didn’t waste any time getting back in the saddle. Thought you were getting older and taking your time?

That’s a great job. Well designed and built. She will definitely like this and put it to good use. The paintings displayed are very nice too. Also, were you a dolphin’s fan in the 70’s? Please say yes! 1972….best ever team in the NFL.

I like what you came up with Roger, it looks mighty fine! I may have to copy this for my own needs. Love the painting also. You and Kat are good for each other. Nice job!

I WANT ONE!!! This is really cool, Roger! I really like her paintings as well. You will have to keep showing them in the backgrounds of your own projects! ;)

Really a nice project though! Great work.
