I have used my tabletop easel since I began painting oils in 2004. What I especially love about it - it is solid and sturdy - I can sit and paint - it can be placed on any table where you prefer to work - and because it is foldable, it can travel with me.
Each and every easel is custom-built by Brett.
The adjustable and removable brace can lock in your panel or canvas from the top.
The adjustable brace can lift your panel or canvas as well. You can also add a second brace bar for an additional $35.
The base ledge is flat with no annoying grooves.
A really great feature is you can set your easel to what is most comfortable to you.
The easel can fold nearly flat for storage and can be placed in luggage if you want to travel with it.

Easy adjustments with thumbscrews will lock the brace, to hold your painting in place.
Eleven grooves allow you to adjust the position to what is most comfortable for you.
When you're ready to photograph your finished work, the easel can be set to straight up for a straight shot.
