French Easel Brush Holder

Uh, this is really super simple, but you can’t believe how much this stupid stick has helped me in the field.  Trying to manage holding 6 brushes in-between my fingers while painting, getting paint all over my hands, something needed to be done!  So I looked online to see what other’s had done, most solutions where some sort of hanging box.  That didn’t seem satisfactory to me for some reason, so somehow I came up with this and I really like it!

Fit's just perfect under the drawer

I cut a little groove in it, it slides between the drawers and the lid.

Had been wanting to keep this in a handy place! All sizes shown in centimeters.

A F6 canvas in France would measure 41.0 cm by 33.0 cm, where as an F6 canvas in Japan would measure 41.0 cm by 31.8 cm.

Who decides this stuff?
