The Pochade and Wet Panel Carrier Do It Yourself Plan

23 pages12 minutes


Designed by a plein air artist for plein air artists, the Sojourn Pochade is a light weight box that comes with its own slick wet panel carrier – the Portage. The Sojourn can carry one 11” x 14” or use the easy-to-assemble dividers to allow it to carry two 6” x 8” or one 8” x 10” and one 5” x 7” panels. For longer trips, the Portage wet panel carrier can carry up to 6 panels. Drop the Sojourn Pochade and the Portage wet panel carrier in a backpack and you are ready to go.

A one day garage-bench project, the Sojourn can be built using the minimum of hand tools. It costs less than $90 in material to build this 12 ½” x 15 ½” pochade box and wet panel carrier. Everything you need is readily available at your local hardware store. Just take the shopping list that is provided and check off the items as you place them in the cart. The detailed, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions below, along with the diagrams, will guide you through the project and help you finish your dream pochade in one rainy day.
