These cradled wood panels have a smooth basswood surface with 7/8 inch solid pine sides. One side is blank for a clean gallery look and the other side is great for a shadow box or built in frame base. They are pre-sanded and individually wrapped. Use as an art panel or a shadow box. I've been using these for my 6x8 Ooh La La Petites and wanted to offer them to you as I'm very happy with the affordable quality.
