Welcome to dickblick
American Easel's wood painting panels are manufactured in the USA from top-quality 1/8" birch, which is sanded to render a smooth, firm painting surface.
Cradled with a solid wood frame, these panels won't flex, stretch, or warp, and they'll last longer than a canvas. Their sanded edges also allow your painting to flow beyond the face of your work.
American Easel's wood painting panels accept virtually any medium and are ideal for showcasing detailed or fine brushwork. Although priming is not necessary for some applications, the panels can be primed with gesso.
Available in rectangular or square formats in a variety of sizes, choose a Flat cradle (7/8" deep) or a Deep cradle (1-5/8" deep). Or choose from a variety of popular square sizes that feature an Extra Deep cradle (2-1/2" deep). Economy (3/4" deep), Oval (7/8" deep) and Round (7/8" deep) painting panels are also available.
When your artwork is completed, American Easel's wood painting panels hang flush to the wall using only a single nail or screw. No frame is needed!

First, made in USA... that's important to me. I use these boards for my mixed-media collage. They are so nice that is some cases I don't prime them to take advantage of the beautiful woodgrain. They are braced and finished nicely, mitered corners that don't need further sanding. Just a great product.

Great Painting Panels!
By UHS Art Teacher
I was searching for 4 x 6 inch panels for a show that was only going to exhibit works of that size. These were the only painting panels I could find in the proper size. I LOVE them! I can finish a painting in an hour or two. Hooray! I'm ordering more because I will be painting every weekend since I found these!

I can't honestly say that I've used these panels yet, but I have looked them in the eye and they are lovely. The craftsmanship is quite good, and I think the panel is thick enough to support anything I intend to put on them (admittedly I don't use a lot of impasto, however).
I must say I have been very happy with these panels. The wood has always been in great shape and smooth, free of creasing and cracks in grain for a smooth finish. I prefer to gesso my own panels because I like to prime the sides as well and honestly I don't trust spray gesso application that is done in many factories due to quick drying and low absorption. These have been a perfect solution for quality panels that are affordable yet professional in appearance and easy to frame.
Fine quality at a great price.
from Palm Desert, CA
This wood panel stands up nicely to a variety of mixed media applications. The sides are very well constructed and there were no flaws in any of the panels. The 1 5/8" deep sides are a nice look. I hope they come out with a 2" or deeper side eventually. Would not hesitate to order this product again.
I recommend these all the time.

I bought the cradle board for a watercolor medium project and was quite pleased with the quality of the wood as well as the ease of staining.

The new round & oval American Easel Wood Painting Panels A++
By Art by Bebe
from San Francisco, CA
I am a fiber artist that does 3D sculptures and I use the backside of the panels as my display. The new round & oval panels are great to stain and then place sand in to display my art. They are super cool and look very professional.
