Constructed of beautifully oiled, stain-resistant beech wood, the MABEF M-02 Studio Easel is an artist’s dream. Designed for larger canvases, the canvas holder height is adjusted by a crank mechanism. The working angle is adjustable and there are two extendable center poles for stable use with canvases up to 92-1/2 inches. The poles and canvas are locked in the desired position by tightening a screw in the rear. The large utility tray with two side storage drawers are perfect for holing and storing artist materials. The sturdy base is supported by four casters and leveling bolts for easy movement and safe use.

The M-02 is fabulous. The design is simple, the materials are well crafted. It's purpose is to handle wide, tall and heavy canvases and it does this without taking up too much space itself. The crank action is fast and comfortable. Does it make your paintings better? No, but it does make them easier to work on, especially if they are big.
