Fixing the Wobbly Easel Problem


If you have one of these A-Frame studio easels you are also probably familiar with the tendency for the easel tray/support to wobble when you are painting. For years I tried all kinds of fixes, putting in way too much thought and creativity into something that continued to frustrate me. And then came an idea so easy a caveman could have thought of it: I used wood shims. Now it's easy to adjust my height and get a stable work support each time. Duh...

THANK YOU!!!!!! jeesh.....I've just put up with it! No more. (I knew there was a reason to purchase shims at the hardware store last month....my husband just raised his eyebrows when I tucked them into the basket....he knows better than to ask...ok, here it's safe to confess: I liked their texture and the placement of the holes in the plastic)Ha!
