My sister is a high school art teacher. She asked me to see if I could build an art easel for an affordable price. Her goal is to make a bunch of these easels to use in her classroom. Ready for the challenge, I did some quick sketching and finalized the concept. Using 3 of the straightest 1X2X8 furring strips I could find (which can be quite the task, although incorporating some extremely bowed pieces into the design might look kind of cool), I constructed a cost-effective, adjustable, semi-collapsible, 6ft tall art easel. I have added pictures to this submission, but to see the full instructions, check out the link here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BysEQqIEYjLVUHNFZm1XZEVtNE0/view?usp=sharing
