Blick Standard Stretcher Bars are made from Brazilian white pine, with slotted, double-mortised corners that provide excellent long-term stability. Backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee, they're an outstanding value for the money.
Measuring 1-1/2" wide × 13/16" deep (38 mm × 21 mm) thick, they're designed with a 1/2" relief to eliminate ghost impressions on your stretched canvas. The rounded edges reduce surface friction and allow for a tighter, more even draw.

One of the wooden bars was splintered on the back side that I ended up just gluing down. Disappointed that it was sent to me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

good light duty bars, good price
The last set I got was inconsistent in the finger joints and fit so tight that it almost cracked the wood. I have used quite a few different brands and the lower cost ones are never a perfect fit. Still it was usable and I usually I like Blick branded products. There is also inconsistencies in the density of the wood and sometimes it is really hard to get a staple to go in. I have encountered this in every other brand as well and it varies a lot. I find it helps to try different parts of the wood grain to find a softer area for the staple to go in.These are only one sided which I like because it makes the recess deeper so the canvas doesn't touch the lower part of the bars when flexing. overall these do the job well for small paintings. I prefer them over the Fredrix but they are not as nice as the medium and Pro duty bars.

Blick standard stretcher bars
from Cape Cod, MA
These standard stretcher bars are the absolute best for an all-around sturdy stretcher for your canvas. I've used them for campuses up to 40 x 40 and they remain stable. The lip on the stretcher bar itself stops that awful look of the canvas laying on the stretcher's and the stretchers showing through. This is a great product and I would recommend it to any artist who is looking for great all around stretcher bar.
Just what I needed at a good price
First time buying stretcher bars. First time stretching canvas. Turned out really well.

Stretcher bars were warped. They are unusable. Who wants to make a painting on warped stretcher bars? I am very disappointed. I will not purchase this product again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
