Welcome to dickblick
With Masterpiece Monet Pro Stretcher Bar Kits, artists can easily build their own cross-braced stretcher bar frames.
Each kit includes two bars and one cross brace (two kits are required to create a full frame). These braces help keep the stretcher bars supported and straight, and help prevent the canvas from loosening over time. The braces are keyable and keys are included, so you can always keep your tension adjusted to perfection.
Masterpiece Monet Pro Stretcher Bars are made of fine, American-grown solid wood with no finger joints. They are 1½" deep for an impressive, gallery-quality presentation and provide ½" of canvas relief.
Assembly instructions are included on the label.

my experience putting Monet stretcher bar together
from Easthampton, MA
The stretchers are sturdy but the cross bars didn't work out for me. They didn't fit in tightly into the holes so that the stretchers couldn't come together- fit tightly. After a struggle I put the stretchers together without the bars.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the cross braces in this kit didn't fit properly. Our Customer Care Team is happy to work with you to rectify this. Just give us a call at 1-800-723-2787, and we'll be glad to help you!

Great product deliver on time
from Bay Area CA
Great product and fact deliveries. The only improvement that I would suggest would be to be a little bit more specific on the web site about the number of stretcher that you actually need to build a complete frame. I bought 4 sets. But in fact I should have bought 2 sets. Now I have 2 frames.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great kit and easy to put together
from WRJ, VT
I purchased this to stretch a pre-printed canvas purchased on etsy. I have zero experience in this field, but the kit made it easy. It's incredibly strong for the size of the frame and the artwork looks great.
Great price great service
from Boston, MA
Received the expected product super quick
Love these stretcher bars
By Jill in Oregon
These kids are easy to assemble and very sturdy. They take all the hard work out of making a frame to stretch canvas on. I wouldn't use anything else.
Functional and Simply Elegant
By Prairie Painter
from San Diego, CA
Cross braces and stretcher bar profile allows for firm and tight canvas. No more badly self constructed bracing, giving a very professional presentation that makes me proud. These kits go together fast, which allows for more painting time. After all, it's about paint.
I am a studio artist constantly in search of cutting corners....or NOT having to cut anything (literally)- These bars are a great price and quality because they're nice and thick but light. AND you don't have to cut your own wood yayyyy! I do wish they would make a couple of larger sizes, though!
Time saving, affordable, and sturdy!
By Dj Southtek
I am using these stretcher bars for all my canvas paintings as of now. I can set them up in a a few short minutes. They are sturdy and deep, providing an attractive look when hung without framing. The corners are crisp providing an attractive look. The cross-braces prevent the stretcher bars from warping under the stress of the stretched and painted canvas. The price is great. Go for it!
poor quality control
from new jersey
the center cross bars were both too long requiring that they be shortened to fit, without causing the outside frame to be misaligned. once this was done it assembled satisfactorily. without the appropriate power saws this would be a problem. it is very solid now that it is assembled.
from Joplin, MO
These are easy to assemble, good quality and a good value.
