  • Perfect for me, one complaint

    I am very pleased with this easel. I purchased it directly from my local Utrecht store as a floor model, saving me the bother of assembly. I recommend it for its features and the price. I had searched for months to find an easel like this, i.e. that can be tilted from horizontal all the way past vertical a few degrees toward me as I work. It holds small to large canvases, easily adjusts up and down for working on large pieces top and bottom, has wheels that roll easily and lock. It also looks handsome with a nice fit and finish. My only complaint is that the vertical struts attached to the chassis that hold the tiltable frame in place are a bit shaky side to side. I'm going to add additional supports to these struts where they attach to the chassis, as well as a cross beam between these struts to improve stability. The easel as is works fine as is, I am only concerned that with years of use, the wobble with only increase. Do not let this issue deter you from this versatile easel. Now, get in there and create!

  • Good Versatile Large Easel - Just a Wee Bit Wobbly

    Reviewed on 6/20/2012

    As reviewed by Duane Dorshimer

    I like the Item #42638 / Utrecht Artist's Convertible Easel. The greatest advantage for me is the option to swing the easel / canvas from vertical to horizontal quickly. I find this feature to be very practical for application of glaze and washes. The easel is designed to accept larger supports- so you do need more room than most basic A/ H frame easels. The materials used are excellent / quality. However, the design of the base allows for a small degree of lateral wobble / sway. This appears to be caused by the higher weight of vertical H-frame than the supporting base. While painting this issue has not caused any problems. Again as the other review stated, it may be more of a concern related to the potential for premature damage/ weakness of the structure. Only time will tell. If you visit this review in 5 years maybe I will have posted an update! :) Also, my box did not include any assembly instructions. However, most of the assembly is related to attaching the base to the H-frame, and it was mostly straight-forward. Overall I am very happy with the product, and I would buy it again.

  • Good Buy

    I bought this easel at my local Utrecht store. For the features, quality and price it's a good deal. I had two issues however. First, a thread stripped. I don't think that I over tightened, it was a factory freak. With a little work you can replace the nut. Second, like the other reviewer I was experiencing some wobble. The biggest culprit are the screws that fasten the support slats to the base by the back wheels. I now keep them snug and when I change angles I tighten them up just a bit with an allen wrench and loosen them up a bit when changing angles. To firm up where the one support slat slides into the other I also put a quick grip. This all might sound like a hassle, but all of the vertical to horizontal easels I tested had just a touch of wiggle to them. This solves that problem. For the price range and type of easel that this is, I couldn't find a better deal.
