Welcome to dickblick
For centuries, hardwoods have been used as a painting surface because of their exquisite natural characteristics. Many of today’s artists also prefer to use hardwood panels as a substrate, often incorporating the wood’s grain, texture, and pattern to enhance their artwork.
The artists at Duho Studios take great care and pride in the manufacture of their exotic hardwood fine art panels, using only archival materials and no metal fasteners, which are susceptible to rust, wood discoloration, and distortion. “Made by Artists for Artists,” Duho panels provide an excellent rigid support for oil, encaustic, tempera, acrylic, enamel, collage, and experimental painting.
The face of each panel is covered with solid wood veneer over MDF, with a ¾" deep solid wood cradle that ranges from 1½" to 3" wide depending on the size of the panel. Choose from a range of exotic woods in a variety of sizes.
Sourced from Asia, Bamboo belongs to a family of woody evergreen plants that have a dense, fibrous, finely grained texture. Bamboo is a very hard, durable wood, yet very lightweight. Its neutral, richly toned strips are interspersed with slightly darker nodes, giving it a look uniquely its own.
Sourced from Africa, Mahogany varies in color from light-to-deep reddish-brown with a decorative appearance. Its grain ranges from straight to interlocked, with a texture that runs from moderately coarse to medium-coarse.
Sourced from Central America and South America, Purple Heart ranges in color from a deep purple-violet to dark brown. It is usually straight-grained but often may be irregular or wavy and interlocked, producing a pleasing decorative appearance. It has a moderate to fine texture.
Sourced from West Africa, Gabon, and the Cameroon Republic, Zebra Wood has a light golden-yellow color, with narrow veining or streaks that range from dark brown to almost black, giving the surface a zebra-stripe appearance. Its grain is interlocked or wavy and produces alternating hard- and soft-grained areas, which gives it a decorative appearance. It has a coarse texture and a lustrous surface.
Note — Due to the natural characteristics of the materials used, wood grain, color, or pattern may vary from panel to panel.

Beautiful and powerful art panels!
Comments about Duho Studios Exotic Hardwood Fine Art Panels:
Well crafted and well worth the price. This company cares about their work and it shows and your art is well protected and preserved while looking pro. Also... I'd like to know from future reviewers, did you notice a particular "energy" from your art as you were working on it? Something I have not experienced while working on other panels and products.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Beautiful and well-made
from northern california
I recently ordered 14 of the 3 x 5 sized boards. Although they are a bit more pricey than other wooden panels of similar size, the craftsmanship is extraordinary. (Even the back of the board is lovely to look at.) Spending the extra money is worth it when the overall look is this professional. A curator will notice the quality, as will a potentional buyer. I will definitely buy more of the Duho products.

Excellent wood panel!
By Abstract Artist
from Los Angeles, CA
I've never found such an exquisite panel anywhere. I'm blown away using the color and pattern of the wood in my oil compositions. No need for background color. The cradled sides are the same beautiful wood. These panels are the best crafted out their.Definitely a rare eye catching piece of work and fantastic beginning for any artist.I only wish I could afford more......someday.
Great Zebra Wood panel boxes
By Colorado Modern
from Rocky Mountains Colorado
These panel boxes are great for my work as an astist, others may not want to invest in expensive veneer that just might be covered up.I knew in advance that 1/8th of press wood would show on the side where the top was added to the sides but paint that area with a contrasting color and you are good to go.Solid construction right on SQ [...]and for me thats the best thing!!Best in Category because I have never seen anything like it. But it is pricey; not overly.
