I ordered this easel for my wife. She was having so much trouble assembling it that she was ready to send it back; she thought it might be defective. When I looked at the assembly instructions I also found them confusing. The pictures were not right. Luckily I was able to assemble the easel. My wife is currently enjoying using it and especially appreciates the way it allows her to put the painting flat. I would give four stars for the product and two stars for the instructions.

I have used a similar easel for years--but not this one. It looks promising, in that it has a tilt mechanism for W/C and ALSO a stabilizer bar that you can hang your paper towels, water, etc. from. Usually you have to choose one feature over the other (tilt vs. canvas holder/stabilizer). It has some appeal in that it could possibly be adapted to give a platform area where you could set your paints; something might be rigged so that you could hang a little platform off the stabilizer bar--it alsready has holes.
