The boards are made in seasoned linden and dried further in the oven. The axes are selected for width measurement, to obtain as many whole tables as possible. For wide measurements, the axes are joined with a comb joint with a hydraulic press (thus guaranteeing a long duration in time) by arranging the boards with the wooden rings from the same direction.
In front are smooth (flat) or with the cradle (excavated) and in the back can be placed two conical wedges, in dovetail beech wood to strengthen and keep the table straight.
IN LINDEN WOOD, IN ADDITION TO THESE MEASURES, WE REALIZE ANY OTHER SIZE THAT YOU REQUIRE US.
The Icon boards are sold in two versions: RAW (only wood) or WITH GESSO (with paint, canvas, polished gesso). Normally at the gessoed boards we also include wood treatment (side and back) with anti-woodworm and anti-mold primer and walnut-colored water-based varnish. The icon boards are plastered according to the canons with glue lapin (of rabbit), canvas, gesso of Bologna and white of Meudon or only Bologna (for pond painting, upon request gessoed all Meudon). Preparation of the gessoed surface and sanding are carried out by hand with great care. The icon boards are ready for painting and gilding. Some possible imperfections are due to manual work, we recommend polishing with 800-1000 thin abrasive paper the parts where the gold leaf will be placed.
