I would really like to make paintings, but I don't. So I thought it could function as a picture stand just as well. And rather then buying it then and there, I thought I could easely ;) make one myself!
It only takes about 30 min. and it's a really nice small picture stand. Also great as a gift!
Step 1: Materials & Tools
- some wooden stick, at least the width of your picture frame, at least 17 inches (42 cm)
- small saw (if the stick is thin, a knife should do fine)
- wood glue
Step 2: Stick it!
Then you place the pieces on your desk and lay them out how you think it looks nice. Mark the edges you need to cut off, and cut them off.
Finally check your layout again to see if the sticks are nice and symmetrical, otherwise your easel will be wobbly or crooked.
Step 3: Glue it!
When the glue has dried, apply some glue between the 2 sticks at the top. Then squeeze in the support stick under an angle. Squeeze the top part some more, and test if your easel stand the way you want it to. If it does, lay it down with some support, and wait for the glue to dry again.
