The MABEF M-32 large Field Easel is a solid folding sketch easel. This easel is constructed of oiled beech wood and folds up into a compact unit weighing only 8-1/2 lbs (3.86kg). In addition to its light-weight design, a leather carrying handle makes the easel readily portable. A single, heavy-duty wing nut adjusts the rake’ s angle to any position between vertical and horizontal. The easel’ s maximum canvas height is 78 inches (198.12cm).
