Winsor & Newton Medway Table BoxEasel
on 7 January 2011
Although this is classed as a toy, it isn't. This is an extremely useful tabletop easel which I guess will appeal to everyone who likes to paint or draw but doesn't want the hassle of a full size easel. It has a very good build quality, being quite heavy with nice dovetail joints on the edges, brass catches and a leather handle. When it arrived it gave off a nice polished wood smell too. The sides of the box are made from solid wood which is 11mm thick, so I although we've not destruction tested it, I think it will last a long time. Storage capacity is good with two long compartments inside for brushes, and three smaller central sections for paints etc. Paper is held in place by a screw-on ledge at the bottom and an adjustable wooden bar at the top. This sits inside the box when not in use so keeps it safe. Order and delivery time were excellent too. Overall a very impressive piece of kit. Highly recommended.
