Professional Quality Pine (PQP)
Strong and light, the Premium Quality 22mm profile continues to be asked for by artists. We've maintained this tradition by producing the profile in clear grade, finger jointed, kiln-dried Hoop Pine sourced from plantations in Queensland. Clear grade means that the timber is supplied free of knots. Hoop Pine is a superior timber to Radiata, and other pine species commonly used for stretcher arms, as it is less prone to warping.
