In the 15th century and earlier, paintings were often done on wooden boards, which bend along the tree rings. To minimize the bends, three or more wooden boards were used together with several horizontal braces to prevent the natural bend. The bent boards here show the natural tendency eventually dominated human devices.

Subsequently, canvasses were used instead.
