Excellent piece of equipment
from Bradenton, FL
Comments about Bob Ross 2-in-1 Easel:
The Bob Ross Easel is quite exceptional. I was really impressed with the quality and build, very sturdy, great adjustability, capable of negative angle positioning of canvas. Also makes a great support for my oversized drawing board for sketching practice. Highly recommended.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Starting out I used a tabletop easel and decided it was too small, lightweight and not stable enough for the Ross method of painting. Now that I have the Ross 2 in 1 metal easel, painting is a lot more pleasant. I am not sure if I paint any better, but the process of painting is more enjoyable! Blick'S offering was a pleasant surprise and I could not resist.

Jumping For Joy
from Roanoke, VA
As a young mother I watched Bob Ross paint on TV every week. I dreamed of having all the supplies that he had to also enjoy oil painting. I have scrapped to get basic supplies to start painting. I have always had trouble with the flimsy easels that the craft stores had to offer. I have wanted an easel like the one he used on the show, only to be disappointed at the extremely high price of nearly $300. I was so happy when I found your web site that I was jumping for joy. The price for the easel was with in my price range of $149. I was jumping for joy when it arrived. Thank you for the amazing prices that you offer. You are helping me to live my dream of oil painting. Your site also has an amazing selection of other art supplies . Now I can shop for my paints and brushes, as well as find art supplies for the kids.

This is a great easel as it holds the canvas very securely. It expands to allow for a wide array of canvas sizes. I have seen some reviews that say it is too tall, but I disagree with those as it is adjustable on the legs and allows you to raise and lower it easily. The one suggestion I have is make sure you tighten all of the screws when you take it out of the box. It comes put together for the most part, but the screws that are in it are not tightened securely yet, you need to do that after you set it up or it will be unstable. Once the screws are tightened it is very stable. I love the shelf in the base that gives plenty of room for holding supplies. Blick also has the lowest price for this model that I have ever found and I did a lot of research before this purchase. Overall it is a great value for a great product.
from Albuquerque, NM
I have used a much cheaper easel to start oil painting and have checked for easels for sometime when I came across this one. It cost less than the same easel on other websites. It is great. I'm very happy with it. I'm glad I waited.

Not just for Bob Ross Painters!
By Natures World
from North Carolina
This easel is very sturdy and well made. I love that you can easily turn it into a table top easel with no tools. Just lift off the entire easel from the stand and you're set to use it for a table top easel. Assembly was simple and I highly suggest you give this a try. Blicks price was the best I found anywhere! Very pleased.
from Hillsboro, Or
I have a small studio and needed an easel with a small footprint, light and easy to move. This easel is just right. I had to make a few adjustments to use it for pastel and small pieces. The shelf is also handy.

A Great Buy
from San Bernardino, CA
I purchased this for my husband at his request, because his other easel was somewhat unsturdy and wobbly. The price was hands-down the best I could find anywhere on the internet plus shipping was free, delivery was very fast and the item arrived in great condition. Best of all, my husband loves this new purchase! It is solid, easy to adjust for his height, and he really likes the handy shelf that holds his supplies. We are both quite happy.

Pretty happy with this
from waynesboro, Pa.
Overall the product is great but I have problems getting the screws that anchor the canvas to the easel into the canvas.

Height adjustment is very limited
from Austin, TX
I bought this for my elderly mother who wanted to start painting again. She is only 5 feet tall. I read the description and the reviews. It was sturdy and we liked the built in shelf so that she would have everything right there. The description said it had adjustable height. The only height adjustment is in the top place hold for the canvas - you can slide it up or down for a different size canvas. You can also tilt the top of the easel so that you view the canvas at a different angle. However, you cannot adjust the height of the entire assembly. You could possibly slide the legs closer together to make it taller (and less sturdy) but not shorter (not sure the shelf would fit properly if you did this). This is not good for anyone under 5'5" tall. The specs do say height adjustment is from 71" to 83" but I did not realize how limited this is.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
