Unlike machine-made canvases, all the corners on our canvases are hand
folded on opposing sides. This technique eliminates having two folds on any
one side, thus eliminating any chance of binding when framing the
Free Galvanized Staples:
Every staple we use is galvanized, eliminating staple corrosion and any
chance of rust forming.
90° Angles:No Rubber or Vinyl Splines to worry about:
We use machinist accuracy in creating perfect 90°
angles while assembling all our stretcher bars frames.
Our canvases do not use splines. Splines can pop out --which produces a loose canvas which will ultimately need re-stretching.

Ponderosa is relatively unaffected by changes in
humidity after drying, making it valuable for work
that requires close-fitting joints. It has a uniform

comparison to other softwood species. It seasons
beautifully with minimal splitting, cupping, or warping.
