How To: Create an Art Easel from a Pair of Recycled Crutches

I know this is weird, but when I was a kid, I longed to break my ankle or a foot so I could walk around on crutches. I know, I know, but the kids always got to leave class early, and everyone did all these nice things like carry their lunch tray....

Had I broken something, and were there a pair of 12-year-old crutches in my parents' basment, I'd probably make one of these: an easel. And even though I don't have a pair, the technique could still be applied to a couple scrap 1x2s. Click here for Michele Beschen's tutorial.
