Plan easel is a step up
The plans for a woodworking project came printed on a 2x3' sheet of paper and were accompanied by about 10 pages of instructions. I wanted to keep everything handy for reference, but there is nowhere near the amount of vertical or horizontal space in my shop to display the plans. The solution: a temporary easel quickly constructed from an aluminum stepladder, a couple of 2x3' pieces of plywood, and a few machine screws. I taped up the plans to put everything in view. The ladder still folds to store out of the way. Or if I need to use it as a ladder, it's no problem to quickly remove the screws.
