Custom Wood Framing

woodDimensions.pngIn an effort to be Syracuse & Central New York's premiere frame producer we use select hard maple wood that is custom milled locally specifically for our frames. With maple there is sometimes large variation in color and grain but we choose our wood to minimize this variation. We use maple due to its hardness and visual appeal. Our frames are chopped, joined, sanded and painted in house at our shop. We use thumbnail joining in our frames. With our painted frames we paint after joining to eliminate visible corner joins, this is especially critical in white frames to eliminate corner seams. Our focus is quality at all steps in our process. Currently all of our wood moulding shares the same profile, which was designed to offer the best in appearance and depth for most images and mounting types.

This is select hard maple moulding that is custom cut for our frames locally. It is then chopped, thumbnail joined and then sanded. The pale tone of raw maple along with its typically minimal grain make it a popular choice for modern pieces that appear too stark in pure white frames.

Stained Maple Finish

This is select hard maple moulding that is custom cut for our frames locally. It is then chopped, thumbnail joined and then stained a dark walnut color in house. Staining brings out the beauty of the woods grain without covering it with paint. Our stain is a dye based to penetrate into the hardwood's surface.

Strainer

Our strainer is used in the back of the frame in order to provide added stability to larger frames. They are designed to be recessed to allow the d-hooks to hang the frames flush against the wall.

Spacers

We have two options for spacers in our frames. We use solid acrylic spacers that come in either clear or black. We can also produce custom painted wood spacers that match your frame finish perfectly.

Custom Matting

We offer a variety of matteboard in different colors and textures, all 100% cotton. Choose from 4 ply, or 8 ply to compliment your artwork, or image. We also offer double matting and multiple windows for the more complex matting needs.
