Comments about Blick Studio Heavy-Duty H-Frame Easel:
I would have given this 5 stars if the illustrations in the instructions were easier to see. I had to reassemble twice. But this easel is very well made, solid, and beautiful!

Great Easel, great price, fast shipping, easy assembly.!!!
By Cyndi R
from Vista, Ca.
I was concerned about this easel because it recommends 2 people to assemble and I'd seen reviews indicating issues with assembly. I don't know what changed but I found the instructions clearly marked with part number and letters that perfectly aligned with the parts included, 2 regular sized screwdrivers were included for the assembly and all the pre drilled holes were aligned perfectly. I am in my 50's and am a woman and it took me 2 hours to assemble by myself and I had no problems at all. It is very sturdy, well constructed and an amazing purchase for the price. Dick Blick does a fantastic job with their brand name products and take a lot of care packaging them. They have integrity and it shows!! I could not be happier. My only regret is that I did not purchase it sooner and I can't wait to produce many wonderful paintings with it as it will make it so much easier. Thank you so much. You have a life long customer in me and I intend to try more Blick products as well as share my experiences about the quality products you carry with everyone I know.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Oops one arrived broken
from Corydon IN
My only problem was packing...one arrived with a cracked slat. I just glued it with wood glue rather than dealing with returning the one easel. Should use a heavy grade box because of the weight of easel is too much for the box used. Love them and the price and quality I love. Just a shame but I should have reported it I guess.

I simply love my easel. I've been wanting a great large easel for several years. I kept thinking that I couldn't afford one like this, expecting it to cost $600! Well this addition to my studio is amazing! Not only was it on sale, but I had a discount code as well. This easel is really nice and having the wheels that spin makes it super easy to move about the space. I am working on some very large canvases, 60" x 48", and it accommodates them very well. This easel is totally worth the money and then some.

It is very sturdy and easy to put together. The shipping is faster than I expected.
Fantastic Easel for the Price!
By Barb K

This easel takes time to put together, but having assembled a similar one previously I didn't have any problems. It is well made and goes together with all predrilled holes. It is very sturdy, easy to adjust and holds huge canvases. I would recommend it to anyone needing a good, sturdy easel for a really reasonable price.
Heavy duty but heavy
By Go Big
from Santa Fe, NM
Really well designed for flexibility of working height and project size. Easy to assemble-materiasl, fit and hardware quality is great. Just be aware it is pretty tall and quite a handful to move around by yourself. Great if you have a studio space where you can just set it up and roll it around if needed. I think it would readily accommodate a 8 ft by 12ft piece, if you have a room with high enough ceilings. Might want to put weights on the base for stability for a really big piece
from Southern Vermont
Arrived early, box was damaged, but all parts were fine. Instructions could be better (images could bigger), but overall, pretty clear and easy to follow. All parts were included. They even included screw drivers (wow!). I was glad to have and be able to use my small cordless drill for screwing in the 8 long screws that attach the sliding back support bars to the easel's tray - just made it faster to put together. I also recommend two people put it together, because it's a pretty heavy and it's big! I bought this on sale for my wife for Christmas, and she is delighted. I'd definitely recommend it if you need a solid, affordable easel for big works! #sweepstakes

Had to Return
from St Simons island GA
It seemed like a great structure to handle large canvases. Unfortunately I had to return it. We could not put it together after 4 hours of attempts. 2 small parts on the back of the lower Canvas holder part would not properly fit when trying to raise it up.Very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
