I purchased 7 of the bamboo lyre easels for my junior high classroom. They are sturdy and easy to adjust. Assembly takes a little while, but not too difficult.

I like it, but...
from Las Vegas, NV
I like the easel. It is comfortable because it's easy to adjust and seems well-made in terms of engineering. Now, my problems with the easel: instructions are pretty vague (I had to get help thru youtube, not entirely sucessful) and the wood finishing looks nice but I got my hands with wood splinters.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was scared for the construction after reading the reviews but my boyfriend got it together without much trouble and in a timely manner. It looks nicer than my older, more expensive easel. I appreciate how it flattens and can lean against a wall to be unimposing. The best feature is the slotted system for moving the height of the tray that you set your artwork on. It latches rather than a screw system that wouldn't age well. Main issue is how lightweight it is, somewhat unstable when changing settings but a minor issue and not an inconvenience really, just something to be aware of. I suppose if you had a big dog or small child tearing around the easel you might have to worry about them knocking it over unintentionally. Anyway, happy with it.

My husband had quite a time putting this together but thanks to comments/tips and photos on other reviews, he managed! It's my first easel and looks like it will be perfect for what I need - easy to adjust, very sturdy. As others have mentioned, this would rate 5 stars if it came with better directions.

Great easel! Fits larger canvases/frames and very sturdy.
from Coral Springs, FL
I own a custom frame shop and art gallery. We needed a couple of easels with the following criteria:-Bottom "tray" to hold art-Top "clamp" to hold art-Ability to hold some weight-Adjustment to hold very tall canvas painting-Price that won't break the bankThese fit the bill perfectly! That along with the fact that they are made of bamboo is a great combo.FYI, one might want to have someone who is mechanically inclined to assemble these...the directions are vague, to say the least.

Back of the easels...you can see the top clamp which is used as a support since it won't reach the top of these pieces. You can also see the back leg which has a wing nut to adjust the angle...and is very sturdy.
60" tall metal paintings on the easels...the top clamp doesn't work with these, but they're well presented on these easels.

A great deal!
from Long Beach, Ca
For the price you are paying this easel is a wonderful value. I constantly adjust the level the height of my painting while I work and this easel makes it easy. It does't take up lots of space, but can also handle large panels. Light weight and sturdy.
great easel for my use
from lakeville, ma
I would have liked a better breakdown of the installation (i.e a picture of which screws were which and a clearer set of directions to assemble but what was there was eventually doable. I needed a heavier easal for bigger drawing pads and canvases and this is working very well.
NO written instructions
from Glenview, IL
Oops, I did it again. I already submitted a review for this bamboo easel. However in my review I wrote "There were written instructions. It should have read "There were NO written instructions. I'm a slow learner, but one of these days I'm just going to have to get in the habit of proof reading my work. whew already!!!
