* Braces normally recommended for bar lengths 36 inches and over. If only one set of bars (one side of your frame) is 36 inches or longer, select a single brace in the smaller bar size (ie: in a 36”x18” frame, the brace would be 18”). When both dimensions of your frame are 36 inches or more, select a brace in both sizes.

BRACES:  We recommend using a brace for bars 36″ and longer. For example, if you wanted a 14″ x 36″ frame, you would order one 14″ brace to support the middle of the 36″ bar. For frames where both dimensions are larger than 36”, you would order braces in both bar sizes. Any braces that will cross each other come with a notched dado joint in the centre which allows the two intersecting cross-braces to nest together; a screw is supplied to fasten them. Braces are 1/2” x 3” clear white pine. Universal Braces  also available for situations where you want to add a brace to an existing frame.

KEYS:  3” long & 5/32” thick; made of birch plywood. One key supplied per bar. Keys for braces are 3-1/2” long & 5/32” thick; made of birch plywood. Two keys supplied per brace.
