New hardwood frames

  • September 23, 2014

I am thrilled to now offer my work in high quality, hardwood frames.  I have recently gotten together with a woodcraftsman who will be making custom frames for me.  These frames will be true hardwood, rather than the manufactured composite/veneer mouldings traditionally used in frame shops.   Using a collection of bits on his router table, he creates original frame designs from raw lumber, which  I stain to compliment the image, and complete with a linen liner.

The wood is mahogany, which has a subtle grain and takes stain very well, giving them deep, rich tones.   When combined with the linen liner, these frames provide an incredibly beautiful presentation that is elegant and refined.
