Woodcut easel ?

Hi, I'm doing some woodcuts using a Dremel, and I can see the advantage of using an easel to hold the matrix as I will be working more upright rather than looking down on a table-top.

I'm using 3/4" birch plywood, so the easel needs to be sturdy.

For those who have such an easel in mind I'd like to hear of your experiences.

Thanks,

Rob

Re: Woodcut easel ?

It never occurred to me that you could do woodcuts with a dremel. I make signs with a dremel. Hmm, thanks! I think you started me off on a whole new direction.

I don't know of any easel that would be sturdy enough to not shake or move a bit with the use of a dremel. If you're good at wood working, you could probably make one strong enough. Or maybe use a drafting table as opposed to an easel.

Re: Woodcut easel ?

Hi vmrs,

Yes, I use a dremel. I also use an attachment, a flex-tool, that is much smaller and adept at using the tool.

Thanks for your response to the easel question. Perhaps a drafting table would work better than an easel.
