Introduction: Easy to Make DeskTop Easel

About: Retired, doing art work now. Great. Have the time and the money to spend doing what I want to do.

Here is an easy to make easel, one that is collapsible, easy to store and carry, and is very inexpensive to make (essentially nothing if you have a few basic materials lying around.  Not only can it suffice as an easel, I use it for a copy stand when I want to copy something
that is too large to scan.  Using a few pieces of cardboard, a piece or two of wood, one piece of 1/8 inch pressboard for the support arm, and some paint if desired, this can be made in a very short period of time.  I priced some easels and they start at around $50 or so.  For short term, occasional use, this fills the bill admirably. You can adjust dimensions depending on your own needs.  Size is not that important.

    Neat! Very resourceful! I like seeing how people make their own versions of overpriced products. Or make a version that is better suited to their needs.
