Jack Knife Easels
Designed in California, the Jack Knife Easel is made from sustainable hardwood ply. The unique patented folding design termed "inter-retractability" allows you to work where ever and when ever your muse strikes. Available in three sizes: 24" and 36" table top models, and our 72" studio version, for use with larger canvases. Great for the painter and stable enough to sketch on, the Jack Knife Easel is perfect for any artist on the go.
Max Wood Designs LLC was created in 2011 by David Michael Max. For the many years David has worked as a Production Designer on film, television and commercials. Some of his clients have included Target, Coca-Cola, McDonalds, Apple, Ford, Chevrolet, Rolling Stones, Janet Jackson, Fiona Apple, and has worked as Bill Viola's Production Designer for more than a decade. In recent years David has turned his focus to developing industrial product designs for the world market. With the development of his patented design termed “inter-retractability” he has begun to release a number of products under the Jack Knife brand.
Inter-retractablity allows the mechanism to hold the product closed until both ends are completely folded out. Once unfolded, it holds itself open by design. This Patented design is being used in a wide aray of products being released soon for the creative, visual and musical arts communities.
