Mabef Easels

Mabef Logo
Produced in Italy for over 60 years with considerable experience and innovation, MABEF Easels are made to meet the needs of the most discerning artists, with a wide range of products on offer to suit all studio situations.  MABEF’S modern construction techniques guarantee the quality and consistency of production, while master craftsmanship results in easels with unparalleled function and aesthetic qualities.

MABEF Easels and accessories are constructed using solid beech wood.  Beech wood is the best choice for an artist easel because it is a dense, yet light-weight, wood with a very high degree of consistency and uniformity.  Because there is no mixture of soft and hard grains in the same piece of beech wood, your easel will not warp or splinter over time.  Properly cared for, your MABEF easel will last a lifetime, reducing the overall cost of ownership.

Every MABEF easel is designed with the artist in mind.  Great care and thought goes into each design, with emphasis on ease of use during painting.  An artist's easel should be quickly and easily adjusted with a minimal fluid effort, so as to not distract the artist from their creative pursuits.  MABEF easels use simple and durable ratchet or crank mechanisms to adjust canvas height.  Both these mechanisms are very intuitive and easy to use.   Larger studio easels feature locking castors and leveling bolts for mobility, but also stability and safety as well.  All hardware, including springs, screws and plates, are placed so as to avoid friction on any moving parts. 

Each MABEF easel is manufactured with the utmost care and attention to quality control.  Each easel features beveled corners and topsides to reduce sharp and fragile corners. MABEF easels are fitted with top quality, long lasting and durable brass hardware to increase the durability and secure adjustment of your easel.  On some easels, leather handles and aluminum trays are used for their durability and ease of cleaning.  Natural raw linseed oil is used to protect the finish of each MABEF easel. Linseed oil protects the beech wood without drastically changing the natural beauty of the wood and imparts a luster and beauty that only a natural material can give.
