Description

The Mabef M22 Sketch box Easel is a large, but easily transportable and adjustable easel.

  • Its box compartment makes it the perfect travel companion.
  • The tin lined box contains four compartments, with a sliding drawer and a wooden palette, which also acts as a cover when the easel is folded up for transporting.
  • It has adjustable legs which offer a variety of working positions, allowing you to work on your surfaces flat or vertically.
  • Like all Mabef easels, the M22 Sketch box Easel is constructed from high-quality, oiled, stain-resistant beech wood and would be perfect for artists who work on the move and require storage for their art materials and tools.

23rd April 2019 Reviewed by Elizabeth Fortune This easel replaced one I wasn’t happy with - I had trouble getting the legs to stay in place. I was a bit wary about paying so much after reading reviews saying that Mabef quality had declined. However I’m very pleased with it, the quality is excellent and it really is a pleasure to use.

20th February 2019 Reviewed by Tim Houghton Overall a good buy for the price. I'm using only in the house as it has decent inbuilt storage, but I would't like to think I was using in the field as the legs don't feel chunky enough. The fixtures are a coated metal not brass and will therefore wear over time. For the price in the sale it is ok.

2nd February 2019 Reviewed by Wendy Ripley I'd give this 10 stars if I could, a work of art and beauty - not to mention precision in itself. I couldn't have justified buying this at full price so great reduction and sharp intake of breath later (thinking what else I should have bought with the £££s) am glad I treated myself.

20th November 2018 Reviewed by Ron Goodwin The quality of the product was the main reason for buying the Mabef and it lives up to its name. I am using it both indoors and out for acrylics medium and it has sufficient room for most of the paints, brushes, etc. Unfortunately it does not have loops for a shoulder strap.

6th August 2018 Reviewed by Debora Alcayde Easy to mount, easy to store, not too heavy,does the job, attractive when on display, and that Beech wood scent is fabulous, becoming addicted to it! 🙂
Just make sure the legs are properly tightened.... or you might come back home to a semi collapsed easel 😉

8th March 2018 Reviewed by Almaz Diblicek My mabef easel is purely perfection! I use this in my everyday painting and also my professional designs, I will be using this at university and for my own personal use as I will be also using this for my 'Landscape Artist of the Year' performance. The wood is very professional looking and the easel itself is very strong and durable. I am very happy with my purchase and will definitely be using cass art again.

3rd December 2016 Reviewed by Hopkins108 A great price, looks good. The fittings seem nicer that some of the cheaper ones. The metal linings in the sliding draw are better than the photos and allows more flexibility. The cheaper make versions with fixed sides are not much use. Nice thing to use and at CASS Art prices very affordable
