AN ELABORATE wooden easel handcrafted by an Eastwood high teacher is to take pride of place at special events across East Renfrewshire.
Design technology teacher JP Murray spent a week’s holiday making the easel, designed to hold a plaque at the official opening of the school.
Former furniture designer JP used Scottish witch elm from sustainable woodland.
Woodwork is the teacher’s passion, and he added: “I have a lathe in my garage, and I’m out there most nights!”
The easel has now been handed over to East Renfrewshire council for use in VIP ceremonies and events.
