We bought this easel for our wedding, then realized it was going to require someone screwing it together at the venue and someone unscrewing it apart at the end of the night for portability, and that gave us stress. So we bought this easel instead. But the wooden easel remained in our office closet unopened, mostly because it made me sad and guilty to part with something I'd never used. But I was tough, and I gave it away. I feel much better now.
