    First thought - easier than brick walls. o_O

    Is that real wood boards or sheet goods (paneling)? If it is real wood, a hanger attached with a nail will work.

    My first thought was: Ask Joanna Gaines.

    I always get mad at these reno shows. Whenever they hang a picture they use a single nail, not a hanger. And no matter how large the picture, no more than a single nail. :(

    She was going to buy a 34 x 62, framed with two inch deep walnut. Now, she's getting one that's 28 x 45 and framing with same. So, not as heavy, but still....

    Good question, about which kind it is. I showed her z-bar, and three hole d-rings with 75 lb. hangers.
    Hesitated to use those on the larger one, but with the smaller one, they seem fine.

    Couple of years ago I did a giant frame for a 6' x 4' canvas. The profile was built up from two sections with a
    piece of skirting board on-edge around the back. Also a liner which was quite chunky on it's own. The whole thing
    was massively heavy. I was all set to build in a cleat system which would have been ideal and spread the weight
    evenly. The artist on the other hand wanted the painting to hang tilting forward which ruled out cleats. I told him
    there is no way you could hand it on a wire, no matter how big the breaking strain. The only way was to use some
    highly engineered Japanese hangings that consist of a 'D-ring' which points upwards and has about 8 screw- holes
    and a hook which also has a lot of holes. Between these elements is an adjustable link. These were all beautifully
    made - all welded. But the cost (to me) was about 150GBP. Anyway.... I made sure the ring was firmly fixed to the
    frame and I assume the hook was firmly fixed the other end as I have had no reports (yet) of catastrophe. :D
