If you need a 20” heavy duty BEST stretcher bar, this is the perfect option for you. Designed for use with BEST cross braces, this finger spliced stretcher bar is designed to last for several years. They are created with a rounded back to allow for tighter canvases, and they are designed to keep the canvas 1/2” away to avoid any ghost impressions from showing up on the canvas over time. The finger spliced pine is free of knots and you don’t have to be concerned about splinters as well. Made with a commitment to the highest quality possible and designed for artists who want their works protected.
