What is a Modern Traditional Stretcher?

An exceptional blend of old and innovative, our Modern Traditional stretcher is an excellent resource for conservation. 

The mortise is partly closed by the added strength of the joint –– allowing tacks to be placed closer to the corner without the risk of splitting. 

The ability to re-stretch a canvas as close as possible to its original form gives our flexible Modern Traditional stretchers their exceptional built-in conservation value. (Also an ideal support for irregularly shaped, four-sided polygon canvases since it is possible to create out-of-square stretchers with the miter meeting at the corner.) 

Features an L-shaped profile with added lips built to the desired thickness. Made with sugar pine.
