Bundle of stretcher bars, keys, and stretching guide from Jack Richeson. Jack Richeson BEST Light Duty Pine Stretcher Bars are Made in the USA, by Wisconsin Craftsmen, and are available from 8-inch to 60-inch. BEST Bars are made of fingerjointed wood to provide for greater strength and straightness of your bars. Our beefy 13/16-inch by 1-1/2-inch profile is shaped with a curved raised edge to prevent bar ghosting. Most inexpensive bars do not offer enough separation between the bar and your canvas. As a result, when you paint, a ghost image of the bar can appear in your artwork as the canvas presses against wooden bar with each brush stroke. We recommend cross bracing any dimension over 36-inch. Cross bracing prevents bowing of the wood and helps keep your artwork square and flat over time. We recommend our BEST Key System be installed on all stretched canvas to enable easy tightening of your canvas should wrinkles appear in the future. Jack Richeson Hardboard Corners also offer a professional look to your work making sure you canvas corners stay square and true. Jack Richeson’s BEST Stretcher Bars represent the highest quality available, and one of the last American producers. Your artwork deserves better than to say ‘Made in China’. BEST Bars, Made in America by Wisconsin Craftsmen.
