Comments about Blick Studio Heavy-Duty H-Frame Easel:
This is a well designed easel. I also have the single mast version of this one that has ben a fantastic workhorse for many years. The double mast one I got had warped wood and the warping got worse over a short time. The warping caused the two locking mechanisms to not line up so it would not latch or would slip out easily. Also one of the latches kept jamming. I finally removed the latches and now I have different length boards I insert under the shelf to keep it in place which is a real hassle. I regret not sending it back. I even added a cross board to try to fix the warping (so the latch would hook into the track) but that did not work. I am tempted to buy another one since it is so well priced and should be really great like my single mast. Maybe I'll get lucky this time. I would recommend if you see the latches under the paint tray are not lining up perfectly, send it back right away. Not sure why the boards warped. They are never in the sun or exposed to moisture. I'm giving this 3 stars because most people probably will be lucky and not have the warping....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I looked at a lot of different easels and when I saw this one at a Blick store in Manhattan I couldn't believe how solid it was for the price. I have been using it for a week with larger size canvases and it is excellent. It takes time to put together about 1 hr. maximum, but once it's together you're going to love it. Now I am looking for a light that I can use with it. Great Easel and if you get it on sale even better.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Easel Works Well For Me
from Oak Park, Illinois
The easel is very sturdy being made of hardwood. Its stays put and allows me to adjust it to fit my purposes. It works well for me. It was difficult to assemble because the directions were ambiguous. I had to take it apart and reverse pieces to complete the assembly. I assembled by myself without assistance. I like the fact that tools were included and all the parts were labeled well.
Basically Good, and nice looking, but not perfect.

Was missing a part, which took hours to find a replacement for, and one small wooden component required modification in order to make it fit and function properly. Luckily, we have the tools and skills to do this... the average person would probably have had to send the thing back, I'm guessing.Once modified and assembled, it's pretty good, though it could be more stable if the top of moving part of the easel were connected to the frame instead of floating.

So easy to set up! Everything is organized in numbers and the visual steps are so easy to follow. The wood quality is great and all around great product. Also, can't beat that price for a heavy duty easle like this one!

A great purchase for a sweet price! I absolutely love everything from the packaging, quality, instructions and the design of the easel. It was pretty easy to assemble, though it took me an hour to put it together. Once assembled it looks majestic and inspiring. Good looks and great functionality makes it a great purchase. Highly recommend it!

Really like this easel. I work on larger pieces so it definitely makes it more comfortable. The work surface is flexible & can be tilted as needed. As far as building it (I am a short girl) it wasn't hard & I built it myself. Each piece is labeled clearly & it was simple to decipher with the help of the pictures & intructions. I got it on sale which makes the deal even more worth it . Delivery wasn't a problem (I live in a 4 story walk up NYC). I have nothing but positive things to say. I would recommend reading the dimensions for the floor space it will take.

The piece I am working on is 4ft x 3.5 ft
Excited by the packaging - Frustrated putting it together
I know this is a good deal, but I haven't had an easel in years so I don't have much to compare it to. Putting it together was a big pain. It came packaged so nicely that I was eager to write a review. But I held off until we put together. The pieces were the hardest, the holes were not lined up properly so we really had to fuss a lot to get it aligned. I threatened several times to just return it. After my husband used something different tools and a drill we were able to get passed the first hurdle. The rest went ok and could have been a whole lot easier if the instruction diagrams were better and it totally takes two people - this is not a go it alone project. But now it is put together and I await some big canvases to arrive. One last thing, it is really, really, tall.

Exactly the Easley I have been needing!
I put it together in less than 1/5 hour! Set it up and placed a 6x6 canvas on it, and was painting in less than an hour!
