* 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.

1-1/8” x 2-1/2” Professional Stretcher Bars & Braces

MATERIAL: Kiln dried, solid or finger-jointed clear white pine

STOCK BAR SIZES: Available in two inch increments from 10″ to 60″, plus 72” (10″, 12″, 14″, 16″, 18″, 20″, 22″, 24″, 26″, 28″, 30″, 32″, 34″, 36″, 38″, 40″, 42″, 44″, 46″, 48″, 50″, 52″, 54″, 56″, 58″, 60″, 72″)

CUSTOM SIZES: Order using the custom calculator, above, for any size between 10″ and 72″ (~25cm-183cm) – accurate within 1/16” (1mm). For special orders outside of our stock or custom size range, please contact us or fill out our quote form.

BRACES: 1/2” x 3” clear white pine normally spaced at no greater than 30” centres starting at bar lengths of 36” to 40”. For frame sizes less than 40”, braces are often used to provide protection to the back of the canvas. Each custom-made brace is designed with a 1/4” x 1/2” x 3” tenon on each end which fits into a matching mortise on the stretcher bar. The brace includes a very effective and attractive “hidden” slot design that holds the keys firmly in place. All braces 40″ and over have a dado joint milled in the center for assembling as a cross-brace (one brace each direction). Where the braces intersect, a 3” wide, 1/4” deep dado is machined in each brace to provide a tight and flush nesting of the braces. This joint is fastened together with a low profile nut & bolt inserted during final assembly. Universal Braces also available for situations where you want to add a brace to an existing frame.

KEYS: 3-1/2” long & 5/32” thick; made of birch plywood or ash solid hardwood. Two keys supplied each per bar and brace.
