The Best Stretcher Bar starts its life as a piece of carefully selected section of white pine that has no knots or evidence of warping. After a session of drying in a special kiln in the Wisconsin plant, the wood it delivered to some of the finest craftsmen in America. They are experienced in producing a finger jointed strip that is known for its straightness and lasting strength. The strips are minutely trimmed to ensure firm interlocking with other strips to provide a stable frame. These strips are not compatible with other brands and work with the Best Key Canvas Tightening System. Use of matching cross bars are recommended for best results when using stretcher bars over 36" in lenth.
To properly prepare a canvas for your creative session, the 46-inch Best Medium is a great starting point. This essential tool is cleverly designed with its rolled back edge to prevent surface friction and mainatian a ½ inch spacing.
