This is a “Jr” version of the 1st one. This is 13”x17”. This will fit the table a bit better, and when Kat is ready for a bigger canvas, she’s got “big-dog” (the 1st one), to handle much bigger canvas’. This is made with some left-over cutoffs from the crib, and a piece o 1/4” ply, then finished with a spray can of Krylon Clear. Thnx for the looks, and any comments, good/bad/ugly. Always appreciated.

You did a good job on these. My brother is a painter and I may just have to steal this idea.

Great easels and great job keeping the little lady happy! I can see these as great teaching aids for explaining to the fairer sex the need for tools—such as a large and a small router, a mini lathe and a full size lathe. The possibilities are endless, but I’m sure you already figured this out when you decided Kat needed a junior version of the easel. What’s the new tool you’re looking at? LOL

That is very nice!

Sr. would be proud… LOL

COOL!

I was just thinking… (just a brain leak here)
Instead of using a Round rod for the Tilt Stopper, make it square just so it easily fits into the slots, and it’s Free Wheeling… Would be different from the common Round rod… and the wood could match…
Probably would stay Surer in the slot too and could NOT accidentally move to next slot.
—- end of brain leak—- LOL (just a thought)

Nice job / Project!
