Welcome to dickblick
Good quality at an affordable price!
Blick Studio Artists' Wood Panels feature a 3 mm birch surface that resists splitting and bubbling, cradled with a highly stable solid pine frame that won't warp or bend. Both the surface and the frame are sanded for smoothness. They're an excellent choice for beginners and hobbyists, or for professionals seeking an economical substrate for studies, experiments, and everyday work.
Blick Studio Artists' Wood Panels can be used with all painting and drawing mediums. Although priming is not necessary for some applications, the panels can be primed with gesso. They hang flush to the wall using only a single nail or screw — no frame needed! Like all Blick products, they are backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Panels are available in rectangular or square formats in a variety of sizes. Choose a Flat Cradle (7/8" deep), Deep Cradle (1-5/8" deep), or Extra Deep Cradle (2-1/2" deep).
The following Extra Deep sizes are built with a cross-brace for extra sturdiness — 30" × 60", 36" × 48", 36" × 72", 48" × 60", and 48" × 72".

Comments about Blick Studio Artists' Wood Panels:
These Blick cradle boards are relatively inexpensive and suit my purpose. I am using them for painted framing behind flat panels. They are being discontinued, however, there are others. These are uncoated, so they required gesso prior to painting. They were on sale, but Blick always has some reasonable boards to play with. I am hooked on boardsfor many applications.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use these to paint with oils using a painting knife, I love how inexpensive they are for the quality. My only complaint is that the cradle doesn't always meet up so there can sometimes be corner gaps.
Panels not square
By Mountain Girl
from Salida, CO
Nice looking panels, but they are not square. I planned to mount 11" x 14" artwork on the panel, but could not because the panel was not square. I checked it with two different carpenter squares and it was an 1/8 inch off by the end of the 14" run. I have had the same problem with 3 different sizes of panels.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A good price for cradleboards
from Port Townsend, WA
I use these cradleboards for oil painting and for mixed media. Occasionally I have to use a little light filler for cracks where two sides come together. I almost always have to sand the sides a little. Still, I could not make these for less money than I am paying. For cradle boards in general, I do love not having to worry about framing.

Great site, easy to use and quick to ship!

Love to gesso and paint on the product. Easy to paint around the edges and the client does not have to worry about the extra cost of a frame.

I really like these wood panels - will buy more!!
from Farmington, AR
First time using these wood panels. Surface is smooth. I like the idea that when you are finished, you are ready to hang!
Saves me a ton of work
By Ana in Wyoming
I use these panels to mount my watercolor paintings. I was making cradled panels from scratch, but they were heavy and not always square. These panels are lightweight, solidly built and so far have been perfectly squared. I haven't yet used them with transparent gesso, but that's in my plans. They will be fun.
from Greensboro, NC
These boards are great. Don't understand why they are being discontinued!
