Let’s Make Some Gallery Stretcher Bars
I bought my wife the Empty Child print on canvas from David Pollot’s Etsy store and decided I could save 70$ if I mounted it myself on some DIY Gallery Stretcher Bars. The build process is similar to making a frame or box, the hard part was actually stretching the canvas on over the bars. I believe this was mostly because the canvas had already been conditions and printed on. If it was raw canvas, it would have been a little more forgiving, but the results were great anyway.

What you need:

A Canvas Print

Some wood (I used poplar, but pine would probably work too)

A way to cut the wood :)

Wood Glue

Staple Gun

Ratchet Straps (or Band Clamps)
