During Open Studio this past weekend, I was demonstrating how to make a cradled panel. The slide show below illustrates the steps. I use this technique to add a 2″ wood frame on the back of paintings on wood or masonite panel to give a look similar to a gallery wrap canvas. The edges are finished with black paint.
