Hi everyone,

I have made (with my father's help - he's a retired builder) a lightweight bench to carry out the finishing process of my paintings with Acrylic Polymer Gloss and turps based Final Gloss.

Should prove handy as I was using a cheap tripod easel that the swivel point had gone bung on. I had some timber lying around that I brought up to Bundy with me.

"...and with Painting"

The design will allow me to easily gloss 400 x 500  up to very large ones, with the edges hanging over the edge, allowing me to walk all the way around the painting without needing to move it to get at the edges.

Batman.

I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

Great idea Batman.  You should consider selling these.  You could possibly offer these on your website.  Another way for your potential buyers to see your other talents.   Thanks for posting.   :clap:

 :clap: :clap: Excellent device, Batman. . .just excellent!! It could be used when I have to spray my graphite drawings and since it is so light weight, I could easily take it outside to spray!! Brilliant design!!
I agree with wholeheartedly with Didwaud. . .post it on your website offer them for sale, or offer the plans to build them for sale. . . . .better slap a patent on that baby, right away!! :clap: :clap: :clap:
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

 :thankyou: Christine :thankyou: Didwaud :thankyou: Bev :thankyou: Chrisanne

As to the selling - again, no start-up capital and no job to fund it as a hobby. This one was made with some bits of pine I had lying around.
