Build your own easel

byoe.jpg

Came across this resource again recently. I had saved it in the hopes that I'd try it out one of these days. In the meantime, this goes out to all those who would like to build a well designed, inexpensive easel, now instead of spending big bucks on buying one. Ben Grosser has generously made these plans available for free. He is an artist and you can see his work here. If you do use these plans dont forget to send him photographs for his easel gallery.

    Thank you for a wonderful blog! I don't visit it often enough and I definately need to follow up on some your very interesting posts. You do a service for other artists here, please keep up the good work.

  2. Thank you Jonathan. Glad you found them useful. I dont add to the posts too often as i'm caught up in trying to draw and paint. actually let me be honest, i'm mostly surfing :D I hope you will drop by again. The easiest way would be to sign up for the rss feed. you'll get an email only when the blog gets updated. Thanks also for the extra wide smile on my face first thing in the morning :D

  9. Hi Linda, I havent made one.... as yet :D It's still on my list but i'm a bit worried about the space it needs. You should check out Ben Grosser's site where you will find images and adaptations that folks have made while using this palan to build their own easels. All the best and do upload the images to Ben's site and drop me a line too if you build it.
