Welcome to dickblick
The Mabef Small Studio Easel M-05 is set apart by an adjustable crank that lets you raise and lower the canvas tray with ease. This feature is sometimes included on larger studio easels, but it's a real convenience on an easel this size. Two side storage drawers are also included for brushes, paint tubes, and other supplies.
Made in Italy, the M-05 is constructed of stain-resistant, oiled beechwood. The sliding mast extends from 70¾" to 142" high and accommodates an artwork up to 84½" high. The base measures 25½"W × 26"D and sits on four lockable casters for easy movement. Simple assembly is required.
™ Mabef is a trademark.

Excellent quality easel

Comments about Mabef Small Studio Easel M-05:
This is a truly beautiful easel. It is well made and sturdy, the wood is nice and smooth, and most importantly, the crank mechanism works smoothly. I was hesitant about getting an easel held together by furniture bolts, but afer assembling it, I actually see this as a positive, as the bolts can be tightened periodically as needed. I must say that the packaging was atrocious. (This is a manufacturer issue, and not Blick's responsibility.) The quite heavy easel was packed in a single-wall corrugated box with no bubble wrap, styrofoam, etc. Lacking support for large voids inside the box, the box arrived caved in at the center with both ends busted open, with plastic wrapping and corner guards holding the whole mess together, and parts of the easel sticking out. The incredibly helpful carrier who delivered it to my house was appalled by the condition of the box, and he helped me unpack and inventory parts on my front lawn before I signed for it. Happily there was no damage besides some rubs where the ends of the uprights were sticking out of the box. Moral of the story: order this in a season when you can unpack it on your front lawn!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
