Rated 5 out of 5 by from FABULOUS EASEL. I purchased my second santa fe II easel in order to both hold a 14'x5' canvas. I've had the first easel for it seems 20 years. Absolutely perfect easels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best easel by far! Don't even hesitate to buy this easel if you are looking for a sturdy easel that either fits small works or very large works. Easy to adjust to either size. I love it. It is not the Mercedes of easels but it is the Land Rover of easels...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellant customer service! The easel was delivered without screws for assembly. The directions were barely legible and unclear. However, your excellent customer service resolved the problem by talking me through the directions and with a exchange of an easel with all of the parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value, Quality & Convenience This is a beautiful & quality easel, like all the Richeson Best Products. I have several of their easel in my studios, this being the largest. I've been up to the Richeson Factory in WI where I've toured the facility where they make these easels. They are meticulous in the process, qulaity of wood and they stand behind their product 100% for the life of the product. On my Haley Easel I had a slipage issue of the canvas holder. They fixed it beautifully & at no charge. Value, Quality, Service, Made in America. The Casters of the Santa Fe make it easy to push anywhere in your space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Easel I bought this for my studio and was very pleased overall. The construction is solid, and the real wood will make most of this last a very long time. My only complaint was that there were several plastic spacers provided that slip into a groove. The spacers have a carriage bolt that goes through them and are meant to be tightened for height adjustments. For some inexcusable reason the spacers are flat not allowing the carriage bolts to lock into place. I need to modify these parts so that the square end of the bolt will lock into place in order for the parts to do their job correctly, and also prevent them from cracking once everything is tightened up. With the high ticket price of the easel they should have thought this through better, or possibly they through replacement parts in the box when they ran out of the right things. I would still recommend this easel, just hope the producer looks into this slight problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Easel! This is a great easel. I searched for a long time before deciding on this one and I'm very happy with it. It is a studio easel so don't think about transporting it anywhere. It assembled easily. Made in America so all the holes lined up. The directions were a little vague about the rope and pulley assembly but trial and error took only several minutes. It is very sturdy. I put a 6 x 4 ft canvas on it and it didn't budge or tilt (finally straight horizon lines!). BTW I'm a woman and assembled it alone in less than an hour and only needed a phillips head screw driver. I LOVE IT!

Hi,   I have 84 inch ceiling height and I’m wondering if the Santa Fe II  Classic Easel can be used so that a large canvas can be raised up without the 2 vertical supports/ masts interfering with the ceiling

Asked by: Carylia
No, that is not possible. To use the largest possible canvas on this ease you would need to fully extend the masts which would not work with your ceiling hight. The Lowest mast height setting of easel is 78" inches, highest setting is 129" inches. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

What’s the difference between the Richeson large easel and the Best large easel? Price is !%) different?

Asked by: Gil H
Thank you for contacting us. Jack Richeson manufactures the Best Easel line. The Richeson Lyptus Wood Santa Fe II Easel item number 78236 is made of lyptus wood and has slightly different construction and dimensions with the older BEST Classic Santa Fe II Easel.

Does this easel lay flat so you can work horizontal. 

Asked by: Connie Kittok
This is a wonderful easel, but if you want one that lies flat, this isn't it. Look for one that says "convertable" or "multi-functional," would be my guess- one w/ the extra frame that moves independent of the main frame..
