This useful piece of furniture is great as a clothes organiser for the bedroom, wardrobe, or lobby, with space to place shoes, lay folded items or hang coats and other clothes.
My second ‘easel’ job for Pusey House, this time I made the easel from scratch out of european oak. It was cut and assembled (using biscuit-jointing) on the dining table. I hunted down trestle hinges on the internet and finished it off on-site with a lavender scented wax that was a joy to apply. I was very relieved to set this portrait of Lord Halifax on to the easel and into its final position.
