We specialize in custom-made stretcher bars and stretched canvas.  We offer various weights of both cotton and linen canvases.  We also offer traditional wooden keys, or hardware.  If you have a request that you don’t see covered on our website, please call or email us to discuss.  We are always eager to alter our process to suit a need!

We start off by hand-selecting the lumber (Basswood) locally and ensuring it has been kiln dried.  We then let the Basswood acclimate to a room temperature of approximately 65-70 degrees Fahrenheit for five days.  Allowing the lumber to acclimate helps reduce warping as long as the frame is in a controlled climate.  Any frame over 40” receives cross bracing as well as corner braces.  This provides a very rigid frame and also minimizes warping.

All stretcher bars are key-able and are available in 7/8″, 1 1/2″, 1 3/4″, and 2 1/4″ thick by 1 5/8″ wide.  Please call 802-338-7267 or email for a price list.
