Jack Richeson Artists Easels

Jack Richeson Artist Easels are known as some of the finest in the world.  The design, materials, and construction of these artist easels set the standard for anyone looking for fine artists' equipment.  When it comes to workmanship and quality there is no compromise.  These wooden easels are completely functional, amazingly stable, and truly beautiful. The process in which Richeson wooden easels came together was with the many ideas and concepts from artists who were themselves designers and visionaries.

Basically there are only five styles of artist easels.  The Table Easel, the Tripod Easel, the Box or French Style Easel, the Lyre (A-Frame) Easel, and the Studio (H-Frame) Easel.  There are a number of variations to each of these that offer different tilt settings for pastel artists or watercolorists, different storage options and size capabilities.

Whichever style you choose, you can be sure that if you choose one of these fine wooden artist easels, you are guaranteed to get the best quality for your money.

Did you know?

For every two hectares (1 Hectare = 2.471 Acres) of Lyptus plantation planted, one hectare of new native forest is planted.

The design and construction of your easel are critical to your work. Nearly all Jack Richeson easels are made out of Lyptus wood from a eucalyptus tree.
About Lyptus Wood:

  • Durable hardwood; as hard, if not harder than oak
  • It's finish resembles either a cherry or mahogany wood
  • Eucalyptus trees are fully mature and ready to be harvest in only 14-16 years
  • Lyptus wood is a renewable source: trees sprout from the stumps of previously harvested trees

Lyptus Wood is a new trend in creating more environmentally responsible products. A premium-grade hardwood, Lyptus is grown on highly productive environmentally friendly plantations in South America. These plantations are a mix of eucalyptus and native tropical forest, ensuring a natural ecosystem.
