Homemade pochade boxes

This is the first attempt at building a pochade box, the sides were too deep for oil painting but good depth for storing pastels.

Built a second one with knowledge gained from the first one, this one is specifically built with thinner and shorter sides for oil painting and came out nicer than the first one.

I'd like to see a photo of the back of the pochade box to see how the clamp mechanism works.

It's a spring that creates the tension to hold the painting surface in place.
