I am always trying to reinvent the wheel. I wanted an easel with everything close by so I have been reinventing. There is no market for these, I looked them up on Ebay and easels are pretty much a dime a dozen, but really they are not that good. Unless you get a big H frame studio easel they are flimsy and well, have that made in China quality to them. Not too inspiring for an artist who hates imports.
This easel has a lot of attachments, one for paper towels, another for a pallet, little rings for cup holders and brushes, both vertical and horizontal while drying and even a little scabbard that will hold three pallet knives! What am I missing?
The little rosette with the brass acorn nut moves up and down and is designed to capture the top of the canvas. It is threaded and will tighten down to a quarter of an inch or open up to a full 2".
My Studio has become like a car lot showroom of easels, from Volkswagons to BMW's. Maybe one day I will learn to paint!
