Hey everyone! I'm shopping around for a nice, sturdy convertible easel, preferably one with wheels. This will be my first easel ever and I'm very excited!

I was going to buy the Saint Remy double mast convertible easel by Creative Mark at Jerry's, but I waited too long and now it's out of stock until probably October.

I'd like to eventually paint on really large canvases but have a max ceiling height of 120". I'd also prefer to spend under $600. Getting a sturdy, non-rocking easel is important to me.

Can anyone recommend another one?

Re: Convertible easel with wheels?

I looked at every easel in my price range, on the web and at Blick's store in person. The St Remy is the one I chose. The same easel is available under different names from other sources. Just look for an image that matches the design.

If you end up getting it I will be glad to show you some adjustments I made to make it more stable, easier to hold smaller panels, able to have the moving part several inches lower than the current design allows and a few other mods. I have used mine to hold 50x72 inch cradled birch panels successfully. I use it laying flat when doing watercolors, cutting mats and glass and for encaustic fusing. I am planning on getting another one for the studio I share with my wife.

Fantastic, Contumacious! Yes, I'd still like to get the Saint Remy. I just have to wait. Maybe I'll get another one in the meantime. Blick has a smaller convertible one without wheels for under $100 that gets rave reviews.

Thank you for offering your assistance! Would you please send me your instructions on how to modify it?
