Welcome to dickblick
Not your average wallmount easel, the Best Wallmount Easel is in a class of its own as the clear choice for the serious artist with limited studio space.
Most wallmount easels are small and light for quick and easy storage, but Best understands that many professional artists must achieve balance between space concerns and workability. The Wallmount Easel achieves both goals, as a heavy–duty model that accommodates a large canvas with zero use of floor space. The hand-sanded, stained oak construction and durable crank system securely hold even large gallery-size canvases, lifting them up and down with quiet ease.
The easel can be used in a vertical position or tilted forward up to 80° for glare reduction or to provide a comfortable angle for the pastel artist. This sturdy easel can accommodate canvases up to 88" (224 cm) high, measures 32"W × 14"D (81 cm × 36 cm), and has a maximum height of 102" (259 cm) when fully extended. The easel measures 55" (140 cm) high when folded.
The Best Wallmount Easel weighs 53 lbs (24 kg) and requires assembly.
™ Best is a trademark.

Great easel, but think before you drill.

Comments about Best Wallmount Easel:
I got this easel for my husband to use in a very small room (70 square feet) that he uses as a studio. I will say right away that this is a super piece of equipment, very heavy duty and solid. The real deal. Hanging it, however, was a bit of an adventure. We positioned it on the wall and proceeded to screw the back part into place, leveling it as we went. Then we attached the front part, which is hinged to the back so you hold it horizontal to the floor and screw the hinge to the back section. That done, we flipped it up against the wall. Uh-oh. The uprights hit the ceiling. No go. Took it all down, dropped it 8 inches or so, and did it all again. This time the uprights cleared the ceiling (which is 7'3"), but only just.We then realized we had to slide the easel masts into the uprights. We lowered the front part to horizontal again, only to find that the room was not wide enough to accommodate the length of the uprights PLUS the length of the easel masts that needed to slide into the uprights (the room is 7'3" wide, the same as its height). We managed to insert one of them by opening the window on the opposite wall to give us room to maneouvre, but the other upright was not opposite the window and we couldn't angle the easel mast in any way, so we had take the front part off again. We then slid the easel masts in, rehinged the front to the back, and it was fine. We attached the sliding crank/tray with no trouble. The grips on the easel mast that hold the top of the artwork do not adjust down beyond a certain (high) point, and the tray cranks up toward the grips, so it you work small, hang this seriously low, something like 12 inches from the floor (but don't quote me - measure it!) or you'll have to stand on a chair to paint. We found that the instructions looked impressive at first blush, with nice photographs, but they illustrate the fiddley bits, not so much the overall procedure, which is why I say mock it up, understand what has to happen and how it operates, and then install it on the wall.The upshot? My husband adores it. I say buy one and get started on that masterpiece.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
