Frequently Asked Questions
How Difficult Is It To Install A Wall Easel?
Installing a Tueller Wall Easel is a relatively easy project. Detailed step-by-step installation guides come with every easel. However there are a few things to consider before making a purchase… One should have some general experience with tools and be prepared for a little hands-on work. If you are reasonably confident with things like locating wall studs, using a tape measure, using a drill, etc, then you should have no problem installing one of our easels. In our experience, most people have been able to do it in an hour or so. It can be very helpful to have a friend assist you with the installation (one person to hold the wall rails in place while the other makes pencil marks, fastens screws into the wall, etc), but it’s not essential. If you are not comfortable with the sort of tasks described above, it may be wise to hire a handyman or contractor to install the wall easel for you.
Can Easels Be Installed On Concrete Or Brick Walls?
Can I Purchase Longer Wall Rails?
Yes. As a custom order, I can provide sections of rail that can be fit together to make any length you might want. In fact, the wall easel in my art studio is 20 feet long! The longest package I can reasonably ship is 72 inches (6 feet), but I can make a number of sections that can be joined to achieve longer spans. For example, if you wanted a wall easel that spanned 192 inches (16 feet), I could make three 64 inch pieces for both the upper and lower rails. The ends that are to be joined together can be fitted with dowels (as shown below) to make alignment easy.
If you’re interested in a custom sized wall easel, contact me so that we can work out the specifics via email.
Can I Purchase Shorter Masts?
Can Easels Be Painted/Another Kind Of Wood?
Typically, no. I make easels from red oak or white oak that I hand finish with Danish oil. I can leave the wood sanded but otherwise unfinished if you would like to apply a different finish yourself (polyurethane, shellac, paint, etc).
Update: I have finished some red oak easels with a very dark ebony finish. These are only available on a limited basis. Read more here.
