What is cradled panel?
Cradled panel is essentially a flat panel that has exposed wood sides that are flush with the panel. Larger panels include cross bracing.
Do you build your own cradled panel?
For smaller, common sizes, I typically purchase premium panels as its just more economical. However, for larger sizes and dimensions that are not standard, I build my own in my wood shop. I have 20+ years experience building cradled panel.
How are the sides finished?
Most of the time the sides are finished with a clear varnish, which provides gives a clean and minimal look, and is ready to hang. If you are interested in a color or stain, please contact me.
