Panels for icons are usually made of solid wood, such as poplar. Solid oak keys are inserted in grooves cut into the back of each panel (recommended in boards 11 x14 in. and larger), across the wood grain, to minimize board deformation and warping. Most panels are constructed with a recessed area, called a kovcheg (Russian for ark), on the front surface of the icon. The kovcheg helps to reduce warping and spatially defines the icon's surface.

Iconofile Poplar boards are made from hand-selected, clear, kiln-dried stock traditionally cut and relieved. This is the board for a professional iconography. These boards are made according to a process that guarantees the right form and traditional style of iconography. Keys are made from solid Oak to minimize warping.

If you need custom dimensions or shapes, you can make a special order by inquiring. Iconofile Poplar boards are ready for sizing and applying gesso.
