Upon opening and using this easel I was almost in complete shock due to the attention to detail, fine wood, brass hardware, the design of the easel. I have used other easels for class and some I have purchased for my own use. This one easel is the best I have ever used. I realize there are artists in the field that will think I may be a bit off. But for the price point I am sure this is the best easel that you can purchase. The setup up can be daunting at first, but after a few times it becomes natural and does not need thinking to put together and use, using your brain for the more daunting tasks of finding my paints and brushed which very thoughtfully, the manufacturer made a drawer for all your items
I am sure there are many more compliments that can be said and could go on for another 3 hundred pages, Alas the system will not allow such frivolous usage of space and time. Thank You for reading my rantings and ravings.
