Portable Desktop Drawing and Painting Easel With Woodburning

About: I have this page to show people that you don't have to be an expert to try to make something, or paint something, or weld something, or design something. Just get in there and try it. Get your hands dirty!...

I designed a portable easel out of two pieces of luan (1/8" to 1/4" plywood).  I originally intended to sell them, but decided I didn't really enjoy making them in production levels.  The time vs. cost factor didn't really pan out.

Either way, this is a design that might make an artist loved one happy.  It is fairly quick and easy and has a bit of style to it, I think.

I added some molding at the bottom to act as a sort of pencil or brush holder.  Just some metal rings to hold the two pieces of wood together and a SWEEEEET woodburning on the front with my name--feel free to put someone else's name on yours!

What you don't see in the photos is a leather strap with a small dowel at the end that fits into two notches--one for holding the two sides of the wood from splaying apart when it's in easel mode, and another for when you want to keep it closed for carrying it.
