Easy to install; moves around well; going from upright to horizontal is easy.
I typically paint in very large scale and this easel works perfectly. Not only is it full adjustable, but it is sturdy and keeps my canvases in place, no matter the angle. Have been using this for over a year now and have zero complaints.
really like this easel good quality
I just finished assembling the easel, took about 40 minutes and parts were well marked and fit together well. It looks nice and professional and relatively sturdy. The only downside I can see is that this will not hold small canvasses such as 9"x12". There is a maximum height to the bottom shelf and a minimum height to the top shelf. I was not able to secure a 12" tall canvas. I fixed the problem by adding small 1" fir pieces to add more space between the canvas and supporting ledge to make up the difference. This is not a big deal for me as I normally work on larger projects. If you work on smaller canvasses, the center unit becomes quite tall to compensate. It might be an issue if you have 8' ceilings. Overall it's a good purchase and I'm happy with it.
This does everything I wanted it to do. A little smaller than I was expecting but turned out to be a blessing as I really didn't have room for any thing bigger.
