All of the frames in this gallery were produce by me, starting with raw lumber in my home woodshop, and finishing up with a unique milled picture frame that is a piece of artwork in itself.
When I first started creating my own frames, I used standard house paint or wood stain for a finish (typically with poplar wood). I soon switched over to finishing my frames exclusively with all-natural "milk paints", often using multiple layers and various distressing methods to "age" the piece. These pieces would look great in log cabins or country farm-house interiors.
In some cases, usually where I use oak or ash species of wood, the only finish on the frame is an all-natural hemp oil which brings out the color of the wood species.
All of the images in this gallery are photographs of the finished pieces. There may be some false distortion in the image, but the actual pieces are square and true.
All pieces are wired on the back, ready to hang.
