A high quality 52” BEST stretcher bar made from kiln dried pine. The finger splicing method makes a stronger wood that is more durable than most natural woods, and it is made to last for years to come. The splicing also removes splinters and defects. A rounded back makes it easier to stretch the canvas tightly so that the painting surface is more even, and it also reduces surface friction substantially. Designed for every artist, this is a great choice both for new artist and professionals with the highest commitment to their work. Easy to assemble and work with, you can trust in the quality that BEST provides and the superior design of these stretcher bars.
