Comments about Blick Studio Convertible Studio Easel:
I am a new artist and have researched many types of easels and some were way out of my price range and some were just too cheap. For the value, this easel is very well made, easy for my husband to assemble, and looks great. Very happy!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Everything that it was advertised it would be!

It gives me great flexibility I've never had.Excellent quality Easy to assemble
from San Antonio
This is a great, sturdy easel. It was easy to assemble… A little hint, if you feel like it is not right when you're putting it together, you probably have the top on backwards. I might be the only one who made this mistake. I think this is a great easel… Especially for the amazing price. I would highly recommend it!

This product is very useful in various functions I had to pull all the pieces altogether but although, everything else seems pretty great so far.Also the retail price was pretty reasonable.

Fantastic Easel Find!
from Bowie, MD
My search for an easel that can hold a larger canvas, can be adjusted easily and would not cost an arm and a leg led me to this awesome find! Moreover, it was a breeze to assemble! I can't wait to start on my biggest work yet.

Great easel, easily assembled and very comfortable to use.
Good--After Difficult Assembly
from Los Angeles, CA
I decided on this type of easel mainly because I have limited space, did not want a very tall mast and wanted an easel that was sturdy yet lightweight enough to move around.After reading the reviews that stated how simple and easy the assembly was, I decided on this one.Granted, it was not rocket science, but it was not simple nor easy for me and after a lot of work, I finally got the thing assembled with three knobs left over! (I did finally find out where they belonged even though there were no instructions regarding their placement.)First of all, if not for just one reviewer stating that the easel was delivered with the side knobs on the inside, I would never have figured out that they belong on the outside!Secondly, the side gold handles have to be turned away from the canvas.Third, and maybe the biggest pain, was the position of the canvas support. I could not figure out if it was upside down or right side up.Trying to follow the barest minimum instructions along with inaccurate pictures was really difficult.And what's with those soft amber washers? I hope I put them in the proper place. And why don't they have instructions for those pesky knobs that go on the tray and one at the top mast?I paint medium size canvases (about 36" X 24") and very detailed so I need to continually adjust the height, which is also a pain because there are a lot of knobs.So I had to give this only three stars although I would probably give it three and a half because I'm using the easel now and it's okay. Glad it was on sale.
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with this easel. We apologize for any difficulties you had with the assembly. The "soft amber washers" you describe are spacers — they should be placed between the two wood pieces on each side where the primary, inclinable frame of the easel connects to the base. If we can be of any further assistance with this easel, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Product Information Department. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com, and they're happy to answer any questions you may have.

This really allows me to put my oil paintings flat when I have major details to paint.
from Portland, OR
It does everything. It takes up a reasonable amount of space. At 17 pounds it is not hard to move around. The only improvement I could think of is an optional set of wheels.
Very bad. DO NOT BUY
Broke on the very first day. Extremely poorly constructed and cumbersome design.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
