A pochade box is a compact, portable painting studio in a small box. "Pochade" is a French word meaning "quick (color) sketch".
Traditional pochade boxes were characterized by simple elements: A hinged lid which functions as an easel, the middle half as the palette in a slide out drawer and storage in the lower section.
Box mounts on your tripod by a 1/4" threaded insert on the bottom of the box.

My banner just happens to be my wood shop heated and cooled year round with a good number of wood related tools, table saw, band saw, scroll saw, lathe, compound saw, table routers, table belt sanders plus each tool is connected to a dust collection system adding to clean work area.
