Making more pochade boxes

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Pochade box constructionI've been building another pochade box, as a bit of a prototype cause I've had so many people ask for one like the one I built for myself, so here we go:

The first image is it taped together, below with the slide-out palette.
This one is made from dressed Tasmanian oak and ply panel, with aluminium composite board on the inside for easy cleaning-off of unused paint.

After adding the handles I needed to figure some sort of way to clamp the handles together to lock it closed (or remove the split one completely now that the mahl stick does the same job)
But opened the split handle can be used to hang rags for cleaning brushes.

I'm pretty happy with how this batch is turning our and can't wait to varnish them, it's a nice change from painting and picture framing too!!
