Making Stretcher Bars

When we moved to Alaska, I only brought the basic art supplies.  Last week I finally purchased some wood tools to make my own canvases again. It was liberating and exhausting. I love power tools!  I made two 3 by 4’, 2 by 4’, and 3 by 3’ canvases.  Our house now looks like the Karen Museum of Soon to Be Art.
