The Quality Matches the Price
from Brooklyn, NY
I had read many of the reviews for this product before I purchased it so I was not surprised by the quality of easel I received. When I began to assemble it, the pilot holes for two of the pieces were misaligned. I emailed customer service and they responded quite quickly. I explained the issue and they sent me replacement part which I received a few days later. The pieces fit right in and the easel went right together. I did not have any difficulty putting it together. I had it together within an hour. I would recommend Blick customer service for assistance. The size of the easel compliments the size of the canvases on which I work (30"X 40" on average). I would not use it for work under that size. Keep in mind, this is not a Best, Hughes, or Mabef easel. It is not made for the individual who spends 12 hours a day in the studio. If you are using large canvases with a large profile, 2", do not be surprised if the carriage slips down especially with continuous use. The weight of your large canvas will be an issue.I recommend this for the casual artist who tends to work on a large canvas. I recommend Blick customer service. They were courteous, professional, prompt and accommodating.
Merchant response: Thank you for your comments. We're glad to heave been able to assist you with this easel, and if there's anything else we can do for you, just let us know!

Beautiful and sturdy
from Okeechobee, Fl
The easel is wonderful and I'm very happy with it, but the directions leave a lot to be desired. You would do better with fewer words and better pictures. From a personal standpoint it would have been nice if the description in the catalog said it takes two people to put it together.
well made H frame easel
By Ayla Griffin
from Joshua Tree, CA
I use the easel for painting large canvasses. It's versatile, easy to move around, and has a beautiful wood finish. It was easy to assemble. I would like it to have a larger shelf though, but for the value it is perfect.

Very pleasantly surprised. Great combination of quality and value. I compared this easel to a number of competitors in the same category, but did not actually see the item in person prior to ordering. It far exceeded my expectations: solidly built, excellent hardwood,consistent finish, assembly holes/groves all perfectly placed and high quality. The assembly is comparable to any decent piece of furniture, which means it takes more than five minutes. For me, that's a positive trait, as the result is a tight-tolerance, rock steady easel that I'll be proud to own for many years to come. Frankly, I don't know how DB makes a profit on producing and delivering this easel, but I'm happy to benefit!
Turns out to be disappointing
I was so excited to finally have an easel again, and grateful for the sale price, and wanted a sturdy H frame so that I could work on larger paintings. Usually I work small, and the customer service guy was really helpful and said that he worked small, too, and that the easel adjusted to a nice height. Well, it does. It looks like a great easel. But it is unsteady and has the worst wobble, thanks to the hinge at the base, making it impossible to work. It is not steady or sturdy in any way. I've tried to adjust to it for a few weeks now, and after tonight I'm determined to sell it if I can't return it. I can't use it. So frustrated and disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that this easel isn't working as it should, and we want to take care of this for you. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Representatives offering assistance.

Very sturdy; easy to assemble for the most part; beautifully engineered; exceeds my expectations.
Great easel will accommodate small to extra large canvases. Would be 5-star-instructions had too small of drawings which caused some confusion and re-assembly.
Good quality for the money.
By Working toward a masterpiece...
I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could. With one minor exception the assembled product is the equal of more expensive models. The well packaged, solid, hardwood construction and overall reasonable stability makes the easel well worth the investment. The one reason I would like to give it 4.5 stars is that the top canvas holder will not slide down to better accommodate painting on smaller canvases at a lower level. This would require a redesign, but the resulting easel would be significantly more versatile. You can place a small canvas on the easel at eye level, but this can be uncomfortably high for some; and, to do so you need a high ceiling. Another alternative for the user is to place a "block" between the upper holder and the canvas.Although assembly is required, I don't mind spending 30 minutes to 1 hour to assemble a good quality product if there is a significant cost savings. The instructions are mostly "visual", so look very carefully at the pictures to insure proper assembly. During assembly, I made one mistake, a second look at the drawings was all that was needed to correct the error.It's a very good product for the money... value!
