Natural Maple Cradled Art Board.

Art Boards™
art materials work in harmony with each other.  We use the same 1/2" thick materiel for the wooden cradle as the for the front panel.  We do this because it is the most stable way to balance a cradled painting panel. 

In addition to the front 1/2" thick face panel there is a second framework of five layers.  This wood framework, which is called a cradle, is an extra support.  The Cradled Art Panel has a total of ten separate layers that further increases its structural integrity.  The cradle and panel are glued together in a perfectly flat press using a waterproof aliphatic glue. Once cured, the panel is cut square and to the exact size.  It is then sanded, inspected, and wrapped airtight ready to be shipped.
