cheap joe's  Craftech Sienna Plein Air Pochade Box, Medium  $81.19
(shipping is 11.99)

This Craftech Sienna Plein Air Pochade Box is essentially an easel and a palette in one. Made of hardwood and finished with a cherry stain and lacquer finish.

Home-made watercolor pochade box. I'd made a similar box for oil, and thought it would be fun to make a few small changes to hold a 9x12 watercolor block. It is made from two unfinished 9x12 wood frames, which hinge together. Position is held via a pair of adjustable friction hinges. The box is shown atop my tripod from Guerrilla Painter.
