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.
- Constructed from birch plywood and
- 14” high by 20” wide
- 1 ¾” deep when laid flat
- Weight: 4 lbs, 14 ounces.
- Adjustable to four angles: flat, 50°, 65°,
and 75 °
