BEST Heavy-Duty Stretcher Bars

Heavier, sturdier & great stretcher bars for larger works

The BEST Heavy-duty Stretcher Bar is made of pine that has been finger spliced. Finger splicing is a method of bonding pieces of lumber together to form a very long, straight bar. Since the spliced joints are actually stronger than the natural wood, we can now get longer, stronger and straighter bars than ever before. First designed for the construction industry, this high tech method yields better bars than ever before. Perfect for gallery wraps. Select sizes available in 1" increments.
(see Full Description for ALL details)

Heavier, sturdier & great stretcher bars for larger works

The BEST Heavy-duty Stretcher Bar is made of pine that has been finger spliced. Finger splicing is a method of bonding pieces of lumber together to form a very long, straight bar. Since the spliced joints are actually stronger than the natural wood, we can now get longer, stronger, and straighter bars than ever before. First designed for the construction industry, this high tech method yields better bars than ever before. Perfect for gallery wraps.

All of BEST's Stretcher Bars are designed so that the canvas is always a full 1/2" (except lightweight) from the stretcher bar to ensure that there will be no "ghost" impressions on the canvas. The rounded back edge reduces surface friction and allows for a smoother, tighter draw on the canvas for a more even painting surface. Measures 1-1/2" deep x 2" wide. (See line drawing in images)

All Stretcher Bars are undersized by 1/8" to allow for fitting in a standard stock frame. If you require exact dimensions, this will be considered a custom order.
