Detail & Spec

These super-smooth, traditional icon boards have been beautifully produced for me by a trusted panel maker from the Eastern Orthodox Church. Each board has the Russian-style raised kovcheg border.

The luzga rebated edge is gently bevelled to a depth of 4 mm. All the panels are made from seasoned linden (lime) wood and are reinforced on the short sides with slot-end braces.


The large panel has two additional two dovetail sponki (braces) which are bevelled at each end. All of the boards are approximately 2.8 cm thick (excluding any braces) and are prepared with a traditional and resilient gesso, making them suitable for all types of gilding and quality icon painting projects.
