This project has two main uses. Obviously it can be used by an artist as their working easel but another popular use is to display a treasured painting in your home. Works very well in your entry or hallway. With this easel you have the capability of easily changing the art work in your home without having to put nails in your walls. If, as an artist, you have special requirements I can customize the easel to accommodate them. The example shown is Mahogany but any species of domestic or exotic woods can be used.
