SoHo Urban Artist Lightweight Mahogany French Easel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Looking I am still learning how to put it together quickly and have not used it yet. Am planning a plein air workshop in the near future and bought it for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it...except for one major thing! I bought this recently and found it beautiful and fairly easy to set up and then fold away again. Except for this one big problem: As soon as I unfolded the back leg and put any pressure on it--that is, simply the pressure it takes to keep the easel upright--the two tiny screws that hold the small metal brace that keeps it stable popped out. Doing it outdoors, in the grass, I felt supremely lucky I was able to find the screws again, locate a small Phillips screwdriver, and replace them. I only used the easel that once, being extremely careful not to move or stress it, and am hoping to get the help of a carpenter to figure out how to solve the problem. Otherwise, I may have to ask for a refund. Sadly, I can't fully recommend this product until I see how easy it might be to correct the problem, which in fact was mentioned in other reviews. I'm hopeful, because the price is terrific and the easel performs beautifully otherwise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elegant and lightweight I love this easel! The only thing I wish was different was that it came with instructions on how to set it up. I struggled with setting it up for about 30-45 minutes. I love the construction being made of all natural parts, however. I also love how lightweight and elegant it is! I plan on using this to paint at weddings in the future, and I think it is going to be awesome. I am going to be taking it to a wedding fair in July and I cannot wait to show it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the price (BUT) The easel is very light to more and a lot of storage space in the draw. I have resided to start painting again after a lot of years and this will work very well. The only thing about the easel that needs to be made better is the small metal plate that stops the holds single leg straight needs to be better mine came off the first time I opened the easel. I fixed this with a little bigger screw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice! Beautifully made. The weight and size are just right. Look forward to using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Easel This is a truly lightweight easel. French easels can be so heavy and awkward to set up. ( think: slapstick comedy.) This one is easy because of the lightness and improved hardware on the adjustment nuts. (Wingnuts which allow for sufficient tightening.) To use this easel flat, for watercolor painting, you can remove the wood palette and easel parts which make it considerably lighter. This is a great easel and great looking. I’m very happy with this. It has replaced an older, much heavier one.❤️

I am considering buying this easel for a trip to San Miguel Mexico. I’m concerned with the stability of it on cobblestone streets and the durability of it traveling. Also, do you recommend transporting it in the overhead compartments vs. checking it in?

Asked by: Jeannerai
The legs of this easel can be adjusted so that the easel will not wobble on uneven surfaces. You might want to store the easel in the overhead compartment so that it is with you at all times. You can check with the airline to see what requirements they have. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

The back leg has a lot of leeway moving it left to right, about 12", even with the all the bolts/screws tightened as much as possible. Is this a defect? It seems unstable.

Asked by: weejie
I returned it. Impossible to tighten the screws that should have stabilized the easel. The screws just kept turning and turning. I suppose I could I used some bigger screws and wood glue and filler, but decided not to make the effort. If you buy one of these at a store, open the box and check it out before taking it home. Make sure that all fits together tightly. The employee was very gracious. Love Artarama!

When fully assembled, how tall does it stand? Do you have to be in a standing position to use it or can in be shortened to use while sitting?

Is this easel good for use outdoors with pastels. What amount of pastels will it hold? Is it necessary to put foam in the box to protect the pastels from moving around and breaking?

Asked by: Pastelartist
Thank you for contacting us. This French Easel is designed for use with painting oil or acrylic paint but can be used by pastel artists. Please note, the easel will not tip so that the dust will fall off of the drawing paper. We do not have a number for how many pastels the french easel box can hold. You would want to use pastel foam liners or foam boxes to line and protect the pastels in the easel box for transport.

Can I adjust the height of the legs on the easel to accommodate someone who has to sit and paint, or is it only for standing and tabletop?

Asked by: ani123
The height of the french easel legs can be adjusted using the screw tension hardware on the tripod legs.
