Single, Double-Faced & Shaped Art Panels
If you are looking for wood art panels or canvas boards for your paintings, we can custom make them for you in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. The designs we regularly make fall into the following categories:
- Single-Faced Art Panels: 1/8” or 1/4” Baltic birch wood on a clear pine subframe
- Double-Faced Art Panels: 1/8” Baltic birch plywood on both sides of a clear pine internal frame
- Double-Faced Honeycomb Art Panels: 1/8” (3mm) Baltic birch on both sides of a carton honeycomb core
- Shaped Art Panels: usually made of plywood, MDF, and/or high density foam
Single-faced wood art panels are generally the lowest cost option and work well for smaller sizes, generally under 48” in dimension. For sizes larger than this, the risk of the panel warping increases. Though more expensive, double-faced wood art panels are very stable and are a better choice for panel sizes over 48”. Honeycomb art panels are a new product that provides all the stability advantages of a double-faced panel while keeping the weight very low: about one pound per square foot.
Using CNC machinery, we can also produce shaped art panels of any design and thickness.
Canvas can be stretched over the canvas boards (with or without a raised edge) or the art panels can be primed and painted on directly, depending on your preference.
Below are several photos of canvas boards and wood art panels we have made for our customers. Please call us at 1-800-561-4944 or send us an email if you have any questions or if you would like a quote.
Double-faced birch wood art panels, available in any thickness you want. Internal frame made of clear white pine. Edges of panel can be square or bevelled at 45 degrees as shown above or any angle you prefer. We can make panels without seams up to 60” x 60” or 48” x 96”. Larger art panels would include seams which are filled and sanded smooth and would become invisible once the surface is primed.
