Artist Easel Plans

An artist's easel can be as simple as three legs and a cross member, or a large studio easel, made to hold large, heavy canvases. Whether you choose a simple, foldable tri-leg stand or a massive studio piece, you can save money and build an easel that is sized to fit your needs with free artist easel plans.

Simple folding tripods can be made in a few hours, while a major studio easel can take a weekend. Use clear pine or hardwood and stain or seal with urethane. Make a child's size easel or double sided drawing board for the playroom.

These easel plans are easy to customize to fit the room and the size of the artwork. Many of these designs are foldable and portable, so storage is no problem. The accompanying plans, tips and material lists make this a perfect project for beginning woodworkers.
