5 of 5 Well made backing boards. January 18, 2021
Reviewer: Nigel Backhurst from Leicester, LEICESTERSHIRE United Kingdom  
These are nicely made hardwood backing boards, well finished. I have seen similar boards from other suppliers, which are much rougher in finish and cost more. Just wish Hewit's did flat-topped gilder's boards of the same quality.

4 of 5 Nice product April 5, 2018
Reviewer: michael brunwin from Braintree, ESSEX United Kingdom  
Good quality backing boards. Quite difficult to get good boards these days, only one slight niggle, the bottom edges could do with sanding off just to take away the sharpness. But I am being picky and they are the right shape,angle top edge. One well know supplier sells gilding boards as backing boards!
