You will not find this anywhere else! Elevate your next project to an entirely new level with this one-of-a-kind gorgeous 24" x 24" Black Walnut and Baltic Birch hardwood cradled substrate. You will love how the stunning color shifts between light brown, rich chocolate brown with super dark brown streaks. 

This meticulously handcrafted, individually numbered substrate (SAS17) arrives to you ready to go out of the box.  This cradle has been pre-sealed top, bottom and sides.  Next 4 coats of white hard-sandable gesso were applied to the sealed birch top, hand sanded between coats. This step creates a hard flat surface to create on.  Lastly, four coats of Marine grade varnish (which helps with UV protection) were applied to seal, protect and finish the wood. All you need to do is tape off the Black Walnut sides with high quality painter tape and you are ready to create. This is such a new and exciting way to showcase your next fine art project, resin project or whatever you can dream up!  Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. 

All of our substrates are Heirloom quality and built to last for generations to come.  Unlike the warped, unlevel, low quality wooden cradles you find in craft stores and on-line, this cradle weighs an impressive 6 lbs 15.1 oz and it measures a true 23 7/8" x 23 7/8".  The gallery profile depth is 1 3/4" which include the 1/4" Baltic birch top.  The cradle is braced extra well on the back using seven pieces of 7/8" thick Basswood including corner braces*.  Unlike other "wooden" substrates on the market, ours do not contain any MDF, fiber board, nails, screws or staples.  We only use the best grade B/BB Baltic Birch, Basswood and Premium sustainably sourced Hardwoods available.    

Give your next Masterpiece a Superior Start!
