A solid well designed easel ideal for studio and college use. The lower canvas rest features a shelf to hold brushes and tubes of paint etc. and can be adjusted in height with the use of a ratchet mechanism. The painting angle has a wide angle of adjustment and the easel can be folded flat for storage.
I've had my easel for two weeks now and I'm really pleased with it. After looking at loads of easels online I went for this one because it had every feature I was looking for. It is sturdily built without being cumbersome or overly heavy. All the adjustable bits are easy to manipulate including the ratchet mechanism for the canvas rest. I did make two alterations; I cut 20 cm off the central painting support so it wouldn't hit the ceiling when the canvas rest is raised to maximum height (good for getting to the bottom of smallish paintings) and I took off the feet so the easel will slide around more easily. This is a lot of easel for a very moderate price. Joan Johnson (Bristol, United Kingdom) on 26 Mar 2012
Great purchase. A very sturdy, manageable easel. Easy to erect and easy to move around. Versatility to hold all sizes of canvases. Delighted with it! Gillian Henshaw (Edinburgh, United Kingdom) on 1 Oct 2013
Ordered Monday, arrived Tuesday - 45 seconds to de-box and stand it up-bliss! Perfect! No more struggling with a huge canvas on a table easel - I am totally happy! What great service and products! lea goldberg (www.leagoldberg.com) on 27 Jan 2009
