8x8 Wooden Picture Frame - Willow Wood Photo Frame

 

Details

This 8x8 wooden picture frame is a non-standard 8x8 inch wooden photo frame. This handcrafted 8x8 frame is just raw, natural wood, with a light covering of Varathane.. It comes with removable glass, backing and hanger, for hanging any of four ways.

The wood in this rustic wooden frame was harvested from a beach in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada, where I used to live.

The only tools used to make this unique wood frame were a table saw to cut the rabbet grooves in the back that hold the art or photo and the glass and backing; a miter saw, a chisel, and a measuring tape.

Artist Choice Ultra Clear glass is included with this 8x8 frame. It protects while preserving clarity and true color transmission, without the green tint of ordinary glass.

All of the wood used to build this rustic wooden frame was carefully searched for and harvested.

Each unique wooden photo frame, including this 8x8 inch frame is crafted from stocks of wood that I have deliberately set out to find. Each piece needs to stand out as being peculiar in shape and texture, as well as coloring and grain patterns.

Finding the wood is often the most difficult and time-consuming part of the process. (by saying this I do not mean to suggest that it is at all unpleasant... searching for wood for the driftwood frame, in particular, is quite a lot of fun...).

There is then as much care and diligence put into the crafting process. There is much deliberation in the details, without compromising the beauty of any of the natural irregularities of the wood.

There are few "products" used (wood glue, oil and lacquer, for the most part) in this 8x8 photo frame, and the bulk of the work is performed by hand.

In short, I go on a wood search, find the wood, study it, and then, using a saw and a chisel, remove everything that doesn't look like a beautifully unique and amazing picture frame!

The pricing for each frame is determined by:

a) the time put in to making it
b) the size of the glass
c) the amount and type of wood used (some of the wood, such as the diamond willow wood, and some driftwood, is harder
to find and/or more difficult to work with)

As far as custom frames, if you are looking to have, for example, a wooden portrait frame custom made, or a special size willow wood frame for a 9th anniversary gift that you have a piece in mind for which has odd dimensions, I happily do custom orders. Besides the popular frame / standard frame sizes typically among my listings, I can build a frame custom for you up to 11x14.


Thank you for your interest in my product, and taking the time to read all of this.

Be blessed!
