I have made a working board for watercolor, very lightweight, to fasten on a photo tripod. I will take a photo and post it tomorrow.
Allan, your eyes are better than mine! I had to put on my glasses to read that on the screen. Yes, you read that inscription right.

In response to the hefty weight of that easel, I built another that's half the weight of any commercial French easel. I never used it much, though. I can't get pictures just yet because it's 600 km away at my farm.

I look forward to the photo of your watercolor board.

Garth

Thanks Simon!

I apologize for partially hijacking your thread, but it would be interesting to gather everyone's personal easel solution in one place. I know there are others out there.

My easel is purely form following function. For all its decorative attributions and compliments, the bottom line is the functionality, and everything is as it is for a functional reason.

Garth

This water color box have served its purpose for many years now. Most of the time use it without the tripod and just sit with it on my lap.

Bravo Allan!

That looks so marketable. You built this?

Allan,

That's splendid. Looks like an antique - and it has as many cupholders as my car.
