All of our products use kiln dried basswood. Most stretcher bars use a two part construction with meshed-tooth joinery that ensures dimensional stability for museum-quality stretchers and strainers. Lip sizes include 1 1/8, 1 1/2, 2 and 2 1/2 inches deep (custom depths up to 3" available for an additional cost.)


We make mechanical stretchers using an innovative fastening system that holds expanding miter joints tight when expanded. Mechanical stretchers are only made with the heavy duty body.
