Artist's Desktop Easel

How to build a Desk Top Easel

Recently I built a desk top art easel for my mother for Christmas, She requested one from Santa, but since he is busy making toys for all the boys and girls, the task was up to me.

This Easel is a great gift for the artist in your life. A fun build and a beautiful piece. The easel is made of Walnut and Oak it features two trays which can hold all of your paint supplies, as well as a paint pallet made from birch. The brass hardware and Oak Splines really set this piece off.

This two part video project is lengthy but full of build details and information to assist you in building one of your own. Here is a look at the build.

Well the Desk Top Easel has received its final finish. 3 coats of Tung Oil Finish followed by 2 coats of Paste Wax. Buffed to a semi or satin finish. This project as you may have heard from the videos, is a special one. It is a Christmas gift for my mom. I know she will get many years of use from it. I hope you all enjoyed watching the videos and venture in to making one for the artist in your life.
