best angle to plane/cut stretcher bars? (not corner cuts)
Aug 6, 2012

I want to take some 1"x2"x 8 feet and angle cut them to make stretcher bars so that the bar will slope away from the edge so the canvas will float and you cannot see wood bumps, staples etc. what is a good angle to do this? I do not mean cutting the corners to 45 degrees.

See pic for dotted lines showing the cut.
