Decent product. No directions for set up. Not heavy duty but Granddaughter loves it.

Very nice easel. It was a little hard to put up without instruction but looking at the picture helped and I love it.

I've been needing an easel as I've recently began painting. It's a new venture I'm absolutely loving.
The day I received the package I opened it immediately. I noticed right away there were no instructions. Okay, that's not so bad, and easel seemed pretty self explanatory. The box it came in had a nice photo to go by, and that helped. But really, this was a very simple and very quick process to set up.
The box is light and with the handle it is super easy to carry. The convenience of this easel is really what's best about it. I can do my painting where ever I please now. I can travel with this easel and have no worries whatsoever. The box opens to hold your palette (which this easel comes with btw) and your utensils, which is great for traveling purposes!!
Every part adjusts so you can set it up to your ideal settings. The height of the canvas, the leg height for yourself, the tilt of the entire easel, it's simple to do and perfect. The screws that hold it all in place are easily tightened/loosened. Be careful not to tighten them too much though, I think that would cause problems and wear out the wood.
I'm attaching 6 photos. I snapped at each stage of the take down, so you can see how easy it was to put together and take down. I did it all within minutes.
This is a spectacular item for the money. I would purchase this easel in a heartbeat.
I did receive it in exchange for my unbiased review.

Really nice portable easel
Really nice portable easel. I love the design. Seems solid. I haven't taken it to remote sites yet, but after setting it up in my driveway I was really pleased with everything!

I showed up at a caricaturing job with this easel and was met with oohs and aahs. This is one beautiful, impressive easel! It's like a piece of furniture. The box is big enough to carry everything I need and it is lightweight enough for me to carry even when I fill it up.
I do have one problem (not a deal-breaker in the least) in that the inner screw keeps coming lose and has to be retightened ever so often. I initially thought the easel was broken when I first got it because it had come lose and the center leg couldn't stand by itself until we figured out what it was and fixed it. It will slowly unscrew itself and is impossible to get really tight because of the inability to actually get your hand in there to tighten it with optimal pressure. I've only had to retighten it twice since buying it and I have jobs every weekend so while it is aggravating to have to tend to, it is not a deal-breaker for me.

Great looks but not durable for daily use.
This easel is very attractive and light. However it only lasted me 3 months before the screws became loose and the main case began to split apart. Several other adjustment screws also started stripping. It looks pretty but is not durable. If you plan to set it up and leave it as a conversation piece, have at it. If you actually plan to use it professionally, I'd take a pass.
