Diamond Willow Wood Frame 5x7 - Unique Wooden Picture Frame
This handcrafted Diamond Willow Wood Frame 5x7 is just raw, natural diamond willow wood, lightly sanded, with a light covering of lacquer, to seal it. It comes with removable glass, backing and hanger.
The wood for this 5x7 willow frame was cunningly plundered by me (Craig) near a beach in the Southwestern corner of British Columbia, Canada.
The only tools used to make this 5x7 photo 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 mitre saw, a chisel, and a measuring tape.
Each of these unique photo frames are actually a unique wood frame. In other words, you will be the only person who has this elegantly rustic wooden frame. Furthermore, it is a new frame every time you turn it a different way. Because of this, the included hanger is removable, so you can hang your frame however you like it best, and turn it if you decide to put a different photo in it that's of a different orientation (i.e: "landscape" vs. "portrait").
Artist Choice Ultra Clear glass is included with this willow 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 unique wood frame was carefully searched for and harvested.
Each unique wooden photo frame, including this 5x7 Diamond Willow wood frame is handcrafted 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 an un-enjoyable part... searching for wood for these frames 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), and the bulk of the work is performed by hand.
In short, I go on a wood-harvesting odyssey, find the wood, study it briefly, and then, using a tablesaw 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 am
