Stock-Sized Gallery Stretcher Bars, Bundles & Braces

Stock-Sized Gallery Stretcher Bars, Bundles & Braces

Save up to 71% off the cost of custom-sized Gallery stretcher frames by ordering individual Gallery bars, bundles of 24, and braces!

A very popular deep bar, this profile was designed as an economical option for “Gallery Wrap” (frameless) display of prints on canvas  between 6″ and 60″ (16cm and 153cm). This stretcher bar uses the unique Upper Canada Stretchers single-key-per-corner design.

Stock braces are now Universal!

Our regular braces are made to fit with our stretcher bars using mortise & tenon joints which must be cut during production and cross-braces must be machined with dado joints to nest together. For these to fit properly, we need to know the size combinations that will be used and, when purchasing stock-sized bars and bundles, you don't always know when you place your order exactly what combinations you will end up using. To resolve this, our "stock" braces will now use our Universal Bracing system which uses screwed-in brackets to mount to the stretcher bars and allows braces to be used interchangeably with any other size*. Take advantage of the cost savings of buying in quantity without sacrificing your creative options!

For bracing, we recommend using a brace for bars 30″ and longer. For example, if you wanted a 14″ x 30″ frame, you would order one 14″ brace to support the middle of the 30″ bar. For frames where both dimensions are larger than 30”, you would order a brace 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 constructed of 1/2” x 3” clear white pine and come with two keys each.

*If you wish to use braces in both directions on frames smaller than 30", please let us know as these braces will need to be machined to nest together. Note also that braces 10" or shorter are too small to be cut as Universal Braces; for frames requiring these, please order stock-sized Gallery stretcher frames instead.

If you prefer to stay with our regular mortise & tenon braces or wish to order by the complete frame, please go to our stock-sized Gallery stretcher frames or custom-sized Gallery stretcher frames pages.
