Quality stretcher bars are not just another piece of wood.
At BEST Artist Products, every stretcher bar is selected from the finest raw materials.
The bars must be free of knots and completely straight. BEST heavy duty stretcher bars are
designed so that the canvas
is always a full
½" from the stretcher bar to insure that there will be no "ghost" impressions
on the canvas. The rounded back edge reduces surface friction and allows for
a smoother, tighter draw of the fabric for a snug, more even painting
surface. BEST heavy duty stretcher bars are designed by artists and made from kiln-dried
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, the method produces longer,
and straighter bars than ever before. First designed for the construction
industry, this high tech method yields better bars for artists. Recommended
for canvases over 48".
