Solid fruit- and nutwood picture frames are milled from trees felled in California, Colorado and New Mexico that are seasoned for at least two years in an arid climate. Frames are recessed to accomodate glazing and fitted foam core held in place with flexible inserts. These are largely unfinished unless you specify otherwise. Custom frames are available in the fruitwood of your choice. Kindly send me an email request by clicking here, including inner and outer dimensions, the stock of choice, type of edge style (square, rounded, chamfer, Roman ogee, bead and cove) and I'll be happy to send you a quote.
