Horizontal to Vertical Studio Easel -Medium size Easels Galore Index
Horizontal to Vertical H Frame - Large to Very Large Horizontal to Vertical Desktop Easel

This is perhaps the most flexible easel I make. It does just about everything. The easel tilts from horizontal to past vertical, the centre shaft slides up and down, or when horizontal, backwards and forwards. It folds compactly for an easel of its size. When it is horizontal you can raise and lower the horizontal height. I actually use this easel myself. I have arthritis and the big adjustment range allows me to find a comfortable position. This is one easel you can use for just about everything. You can even peg it to the ground with Tent Pegs, if you have the free tent peg hole option

FFHVL easel fitted with a tilting tray, you can adjust the tray so it is always horizontal no matter what angle the easel is at.

Note the tilting tray is still horizontal, even though the easel angle has changed.

Compare the easel when folded to in the upright position with the centre shaft extended.

Use this easel as a desk with the addition of a board.

This was my personal easel and how I paint, using a tilt tray, to take my palette, hold my brushes and wine. The painting I did in a 2 hour session with big brushes.

If you plan to use your easel out doors, ask for tent peg holes to be drilled through the feet (no cost option), you can then peg the easel to the ground.

Stability of easels is based on design and the cross section of the wood used.

Fully folds, triangulated legs give great stability. Tilts any angle with one adjusting knob. Top slides up ( height 1.8 metres)and down so it is a good height for painting standing or sitting. Slide back and tilt to make a drawing table when fitted with a board. Sit or stand to paint. For Flip Flop Painting there is one locking knob to adjust tilt. Two locking knobs adjust slide. Vary the height when horizontal. Folds compactly so it is easy to store and cheap to freight.
