Tueller Wall Easels
Made to order, handcrafted wall-mounted easels
I am now making small numbers of handmade wall mounted easels available for purchase like the space saving wall easel that I built for my own studio. I’ve made some refinements, but the design of the wall easels has remained essentially the same – screw the rails onto the wall, then hang masts anywhere along the length. The standard configuration is a 66 inch wide wall easel with two masts. However, custom lengths of wall rail, additional masts and canvas holders can be purchased to create a wall easel at whatever size you need.
From the start, I wanted a wall easel that wasn’t unnecessarily complicated. The wall easels that I make are simple, lightweight, sturdy and easy to use. Hang a mast anywhere on the rails then close the cam levers to hold them firmly in place. Each easel is handcrafted from responsibly harvested Appalachian oak (from Draftwood Forest Products of Floyd, Virginia) and hand rubbed with Danish oil.
The modular design makes our wall easels very easy to add onto. Starting with the 66 inch wide wall easel package, one can add additional masts and more lengths of wall rail to create seriously large painting areas that can of accommodate multiple painting stations or extra large canvases. This makes our easels well suited to classrooms and workshop studios as well as small spaces.
Options for the Wall Easels
For painters who work on especially deep supports and for those needing unobstructed edge-to-edge access, the standard canvas holders can be swapped out for deep canvas holders. Additionally, removable work trays can be added to hold your paint brushes and such. The wall easels can be made of your choice of red oak, white oak or ebonized oak.
Standard Canvas Holder
The Standard Canvas Holders included with our easels have a slot for canvases up to 1-½” with an additional ¼” slot for holding panels.
Optional Deep Canvas Holders
Do you work large? Upgrade to Deep Canvas Holders with non-slip rubber grips that hold canvases or cradled panels up to 3-⅜” deep.
Optional Work Trays
Adjustable 11″ x 18″ work trays keep your art supplies close at hand while working. The trays can be positioned anywhere on the masts or taken off altogether.
