Build the Best easel that works for you!
The Best Boundary Free Easel System (BFE) is a revolutionary easel system that lets you create the ideal configuration to suit your space and needs. From a triple mast easel that holds billboard-size paintings to a single mast easel for a tall, narrow loft space, there's a Boundary Free Easel that's just right for your studio, classroom, or gallery — for work, display, or both!
A basic BFE configuration consists of a mast, a bottom canvas holder, and a top canvas holder. Simply attach the mast to the wall, add the sturdy locking canvas holders, and you have built a beautiful, functional easel that maximizes your space from floor to ceiling.
Expand upon this basic configuration by adding multiple posts (which are stackable and available in three sizes), as well as additional canvas holders. Fill a limited area or an entire wall — there are literally no boundaries to the number or size of canvases you can accommodate.
Best has put together four BFE sets that can be ideal on their own or to which you can add additional masts and canvas holders to suit your space. Imagine a studio with a 20 ft wall and 16 ft ceiling. In this scenario, the ideal BFE installation would be the 12 ft Triple Mast Set. With the masts installed 8 ft apart, the artist could paint a 19 ft × 11 ft painting, work on a series of small works simultaneously, or use the masts to display works for a studio opening.
All Best Boundary Free Easel System components are made in Wisconsin of Appalachian Red Oak, the strongest, most durable wood for an easel, and backed by the manufacturer's lifetime guarantee. Finished by hand with Best Easel Oil, an exclusive formula that penetrates and preserves while imparting a beautiful finish, your BFE can periodically be renewed with additional applications of easel oil to keep it looking and performing its best.
Hanging hardware is included with every mast as well as the sets, but if you are securing your BFE to a masonry wall, additional anchors are required (not included).
Simple, strong hardware for hanging canvases, frame wire, or even a flat panel TV, these hangers are sold in a package of 8.
The first building block of your customized easel configuration, simply attach one or more to any wall, then add canvas holders, hangers, or copper posts to support your work. Masts are available in three sizes and stackable, so you can put various sizes together that conform to your space. Basic hanging hardware is included, but if you are securing the masts to a masonry wall, additional anchors are required (not included).
These posts serve as small canvas supports. Beautiful as well as functional, they feature copper tubing that covers the bolt threads, thus protecting the edges of your canvas. Posts are sold in a package of 4.
This freestanding easel with a removable base and back leg gives the artist infinite flexibility. When maximum floor space and stability are required, simply remove the base and leg and mount the mast to the wall. The easel includes one 7 ft mast, one large bottom canvas holder, one small bottom canvas holder, and two small top canvas holders. It holds a canvas up to 58" high.
