Enjoy perfect stability whether you're working seated or standing. This Lyptus hardwood H-frame easel features a laminated quad base, with a slide and lock height adjustment system. Assembly required. Lyptus premium hardwood is grown on well-managed plantations in South America, making it the eco-friendly choice for the global consumer. Lyptus wood is from hybrid eucalyptus trees, which mature in 14-16 years (other hardwoods take up to 60 years). Lyptus trees sprout from the stump of previously harvested trees, so the forest is always renewing itself! The wood is harder than oak, enabling easels made of Lyptus to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.

I have used this easel for years in one of my two painting stations. Overall for the money it is a great little easel. It does have it's issues, but with a little help you can take this very inexpensive easel and make it great. The good point is you can turn it into a weighted H easel very easily, by adding two large eye screws under the horizonal H on the frame and attaching them to the back of the canvas tray. You can than add a heavy line with a barbell weight and have a easel that the canvas tray moves up and down. Otherwise the canvas tray and screw knob of the original design doesn't support large paintings, and falls with the weight. I paint portraits and large canvases so that solved that problem. The other issue is the holder at the top did not hold my canvases and after have a few large paintings fell off I started using those tiny bungies cords to wrap around the center mast and though the support crossbar of my canvas. Another problem solved...
If this is a knock off of a more costly easel it is an excellent one. Contrary to the description, it came about 85-90% assembled. Basically, two screws for the supports and then you easily attach the upper and lower trays. Also, 4 simple foot protectors screw in the bottom. It took about 15 minutes. It is a sturdy, medium sized H frame easel. And the reddish tones are sweet to look at. Honestly, I like the coloring better than the original oak that costs way more. I have a canvas on it already!
We did our research, but we were still very impressed with construction and ease of assembly. This is a must have for artists who want great value for the money.
