I am extremely happy with my new easel. It’s wider than my old workhorse easel and the mast expands higher, which means it can accommodate much larger paintings. For as big as it is, it moves easily on its solid rollers. There are stops next to each roller to keep it in place. It can be positioned horizontally! It’s better engineered than my old easel–by far.
The tray is large. I’ve shellacked the tray (as you can see in the photo) to make it easier to wipe clean. Like I said, I am very happy with it
