Welcome to dickblick
Since 1948 Mabef easels have been manufactured in Italy by skilled craftsmen who have perfected the art of making easels. Each Mabef easel has a simple, functional design that is strong, solid, reliable, and long lasting. That is why all Mabef easels are backed by a lifetime warranty.
Big ideas come to life when using this finely-crafted, oiled beechwood studio easel with rachet action that adjusts to handle canvases up to 7 feet high.
The Artist Plus Easel features a lower canvas tray that moves nearly to the floor, and an independently moving top mast for secure, easy variable height adjustment. A brush and equipment tray below the canvas ledge holds ample supplies.
Light assembly is required.

Very happy with this easel, however...

Comments about Mabef Artist Plus Easel M-07:
This brand of easel was recommended to me by my art teacher. She uses Mabef easels in her studio and it's a pleasure to now use this quality easel at home. It's extremely sturdy and adjusts to various positions/heights to accommodate whatever I'm working on.HOWEVER, I'm rating it lower than 5-stars because of the assembly process. The instructions that come with the disassembled pieces (and there are a lot of them!) are difficult to follow. I highly suggest that you not try to assemble this alone - have a 2nd (very patient) person help you. A structural engineer would be a good idea LOL.Now that it's put together, I'm extremely happy with it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

JUST WHAT I WANTED
from LOS ANGELES, CA
I needed an easel for my apartment studio that was sturdy and that I could work on for small and large paintings. This fits the bill perfectly. It's made of very sturdy solid wood, doesn't wobble when I use it, is light enough to push around my apartment if I need to move it, and the latches and everything work perfectly. The instructions were annoying but whatever - I have a great looking and usable easel after 1 hour of labor!
from Bronx, NY
Solid, stable and compact: adjustments are smooth, variable. One does not need to contact top edge to make canvas secure. The shelf is useful.There was one glitch in construction - part B's hole is to small to accept locking metal projection in upright slat into the top of the shelf. Does not effect use, but is annoying at any price.
Highly recommend this easel Mabef M-07
Well designed and very sturdy. I gave this easel as a gift and the artist is absolutely loving it. Functions beautifully.

This easel funtions well and is easy to use. It is perhaps a bit too nice given that is going to get paint all over it, but it is attractive and solid. It will hold large canvases easily. Some things to think about. The mast is quite tall and if you work in a room with a low ceiling the mast may be too tall. I had to cut mine down by a foot as my studio is in an attic room with a low clearance. The shelf which comes with it doesn't seem very useful and makes the moveable part heavier than necessary. At the highest setting the bottom of the canvas is still a little low for me to work comfortably standing up. I'm about six feet tall. I have very little experience with other easels. I didn't want to rate this easel too highly as I don't have much to compare it with. However, it is very satisfactory. Blick had the best price I could find.
