Koo Schadler Table Easel

I've spent my career as an egg tempera painter, and in that time I’ve learned what table easel works best for me. Guided by my preferences, my husband Jeff built a table easel that meets my needs as a tempera painter. He is now producing these easels on a limited basis, for sale to fellow painters.

The easel top is made from ¾” birch plywood and measures 14” high by 20” wide. At the bottom is a narrow 5/16” deep shelf - just wide enough to support a ¼” hardboard panel, but not so wide to encumber hand movements. The pine base supporting the top can be adjusted to four different settings; the easel can lie flat, or at 50°, 65°, or 75° angles. The easel arrives unfinished, which is how I have left mine (accumulating layers of tempera paint create a colorful finish of their own!) However you could readily finish it on your own if you prefer.
