I tapered all the wood strips on a table saw, drilled the holes for the dowels and then mixed the epoxy gluing the two halves together. I let them dry overnight and then sanded a radius on all the edges which gives it a nice rounded edge to grab when carrying. I drilled holes for the pegs, the feet pads and then screwed in the hinges. When all of that was done I rubbed it with a wax/sealer which brings out the beauty of the oak.
It will hold two paintings, looks cool and is easy to setup...and cost very little. It's a great indoor easel and will look good in my house too.
Here is what my view of Jean's area looked like most of the day...customers customers customers. She did really well and it goes to show that planning pays off. Jean is totally a veteran of selling art and knows what the heck she is doing....how do I know this?, because I had to help her pack some of her sold paintings! I'm doing another show thatJean is in charge of later this month so I'm going to gear up with things I've learned here and hope for a better day.
