CHAP. I. Of Painting in Oyl, & the Materials thereof.
I. Painting in Oyl is nothing but the work or Art of Limning performed with colours made up or mixed with oyl.
II. The materials of Painting are chiefly seven, 1.
The Easel, 2. The Pallet, 3. The Straining frame, 4. The Primed cloath, 5. Pensils, 6. The Stay, 7. Colours. [...] IV. The Pallet is a thin piece of wood, (Peartree or Walnut) a foot long, and about ten Inches broad, almost like an Egg, at the narrowest end of which is made an hole, to put in the thumb of the left hand, near to which is cut a notch, that so you may hold the pallet in your hand. Its use is to hold and temper the Colours upon.

Quotation

I Might here describe the form and fashion of your Easell and Pallat, but I think, I need not ; for he that ever saw a Painter at work must needs see these two Instruments ; but what they are, I shall here describe. [...] A Pallat is a thin piece of wood, and is necessary to be about twelve or fourteen inches long, and nine or ten inches broad, in form of an Egge, at the narrower end whereof is a hole made also of an Oval form, about an inch and a half in length, and an inch broad ; this hole is to put in your thumb of your left hand upon which you must always hold it when you are at work ; out of the side of your Pallat near unto the thumb hole is cut a notch, by the side of which the Pencils which you hold in your left hand also may come through, by which means you may take any of them out, or put another in at pleasure. These Pallats ought to be very thin and light, especially at the broad end, but toward the thumb-hole somewhat thick, yet not above half a quarter of an inch ; the best wood to make them of is Pear-tree, or Walnut-tree.
