Art Easel Plan is a 28 page ebook of instructions (with pictures and diagrams in imperial (US) measurements) on how to build an adjustable, professional, wood easel that can support a large canvas or board. It also has a movable shelf for paints, brushes, rag, pallet, medium, drink and who knows what else. The simple design uses standard dimensional lumber that makes it easy to build, and very affordable. Depending on your choice of lumber (oak, fir, pine) the cost of materials can be under $100. Included is a list of tools, a materials list and a lumber cut list to make your job as easy as possible. If you have limited tools and limited work space, all the pieces can be cut at your local building supply store from standard dimension lumber.
Your finished easel will be a beautiful piece of wood furniture that will help you to create your own art masterpieces. If you ever want to put it away it will fold up to fit in a closet or under a bed.

Another happy customer:

I just finished building an easel from your plans. I used 4/4 cherry, plugged screws, and brass hardware. My wife is ecstatic but is afraid to get paint all over it.
Your plans were very clear and easy to follow.
Here's an album of the easel.
Thanks again, Sam

Built this easel from CoastPainter's plans. Build was straight forward and the plans worked out great. Print the plans in color to help you see where everything goes, get a little wax for the sliding parts, watch which way you install the hinges and everything will work perfectly. I would rank this as an intermediate woodworking project.
Given that the wife cried when she got it for Xmas, I would suggest this to any woodworker with a painter in the family!

Project came out great! Plans were pretty clear, but definitely not a beginner project. We didn’t use floor boards as the instructions noted, but made the tongues and grooves ourselves. Also used hickory instead of the wood suggested, so made the project a little more difficult since the wood was harder than those suggested. If you have the right equipment, there are some adjustments like that you can make to the plans.

I had a question when I was about to start building from the plans and Roland answered within a few hours. The plan was also easy to read with some good diagrams and pictures. I decided to make this for my wife as a Christmas present. This isn’t a beginner project by any means but not extremely difficult either. I mixed some new oak with some old T&G oak that came out of an old school house. I love the blend of the new with the old. This easel is the easel of all easels. It’s very functional, strong, versatile and seriously simply a beautiful design. I wouldn’t have been able to find anything this gorgeous at a store. Thank you Roland!

My easel turned out great. There are a few mistakes on the cut sheet. Missing the little pieces on the palette table for the sides. And the plans aren't very specific on the placement of the pieces of wood for the deck and the back of the easel. All in all good plans, wife likes hers, all that matters.
