A Frame Easels - Also sometimes called Lyre Easels - Go To Photo Page

A Frames are the workhorse easel, simple, strong and with minimal moving parts. They offer good support but always tilt back. All my A frames have a bolted high friction hinge that has no free play and gives great stability. Mounts are fully and infinitely adjustable with two turn to lock knobs using a strong vice grip. These easels are strong stable and very reliable. Built to last with the absolute minimum of maintenance.

Choice of two weights, 42x19mm frame makes for a lighter easel for when you do not want to carry a lot of weight around, and 65x19mm frame for a heavier easel. Both easels are sturdy and stable but there is no substitution for more wood when you paint robustly.
