This is my version of the “Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Easel Build”. Inspired by both Marc (The WW) and Steve (WWMM), I came up with some minor changes to the design but added three different joinery techniques (half lap, half blind DT and sliding DT’s) along with a possible fourth one for the way the tray is located on the legs of the easel.

This was done in the honor of my mother who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer a little over a year ago. She underwent a radical double mastectomy and is now in remission. This is also in honor of my mother in law who also has had her bout with cancer and won. Also, we must not forget about all the other who are fighting cancer and struggling. This is for you too. This build will help with donations from the WW and WWMM along with corporate sponsorships from the WW side of things. Thank you all for inspiring us to show how we all care.

This was also for my beautiful daughter, Hannah (pictured above)

I did a video on this on my YouTube Channel that you can watch the full build. Check it out here.

Really nice version Drew. I like the two different dovetails on the tray assembly. It’s a for a great cause. I’m working on one myself and hope to have it done this week.

Thank you all for your kind words. Joinery was a fun challenge but I think it turned out really good. This cause means a lot to me because of what I stated above. Thank you all for your comments again!!!
