Merbau Heavy Duty A Frame Easel

Home - A Frames - Tilt Adjustable A Frames - Double sided A Frames - Counterweight A Frames

A seriously heavy duty A frame easel 1.8 metres tall, made from 70x19mm Merbau. It is a heavy rugged easel suited for art and display. This easel has all the strength and features of my regular easels, with a deep fully adjustable support mount or shelf. Nothing will wobble, break or fall apart with prolonged hard work. This easel is way more robust, much better built and uses top quality wood compared to any other easel available in Australia for the same price and a lot more (for easels other than mine).

Very strong easel, shown here holding 48 kilograms weight of Merbau. If you order an easel to hold over 20 kg It has to have modifications not shown here to cover all situations.


Merbau is an imported premium hardwood.

Unsanded Model ABMU1800 - $120 - the wood is dressed. The edges are pencil (rounded) the cut ends will be sanded .There will be purplish surface staining from the saps inside the wood.

Medium sanded Model ABMS1800 - $145 - The wood has been medium sanded.The surface stains on the wood will be much reduced by the sanding and can be reomved with further sanding.

It is recommended to preserve the wood that it be oiled, a simple process of rubbing Olive Oil into the wood, instructions supplied. When oiled the wood will go darker and develop a nice glow.

Fine sanded and oiled ABM1800 - $170 - the wood is fine sanded and oiled with olive oil. The colour will be a dark, chocolate golden brown, see photos

Arrow points to head of one of 2 bolts holding the bottom mount. Note the screws so the bolt will never work loose.

Infinitely adjustable bottom mount is a generous depth, and has easy to grip cubed wooden adjusting knobs. Vice grip on easel is very strong.

Note the countersunk screw heads. Screws are "chiptites", designed for chipboard but with a hugely strong grip in good wood like Merbau.

Optional top mount $15 optional tray $100 - price includes GST

I can send Fully Assembled Easels (Glued and screwed) to Melbourne Metro, Sydney/Adelaide for only $20 extra per package. Other areas are a very reasonable premium on the above prices. You are only paying for the extra cartage cost. Up to 2 fully assembled easels fit in parcel for same price IE it costs a total of $55 to ship 2 fully assembled easels to Sydney.

When easels are sent to a private home please advise a secure place where the parcel can be left, if no one is home. I can usually predict when parcels will arrive in Metro areas however this is not 100% accurate and cannot be fully relied upon. My carrier will not leave a parcel without instructions to do so.
