Here is my version of an artist's taboret, "a movable stand to accommodate brushes, palette, and miscellaneous tools". I usually let it stand near my easle for easy access--check the wheels. It's made of maple wood; yeah, it's a bit heavy. I got a good deal on this baby from IKEA. It is supposedly a kitchen island; the height, it's top space and mobility is just what I need. As long as it works perfectly for me, it's all good.
