Wood Photo Frame 8x10 Willow Wood Picture Frame Live Edge
DetailsThis elegant wood frame is made from Diamond Willow wood, which is Craig's favorite, but is extremely rare on the coast of Mainland British Columbia, Canada, where he lives. But he did find a very big pile of it! This particular handcrafted 8x10 picture frame, like all of these frames, is just raw, natural wood, lightly sanded, with a light covering of lacquer, to seal it. It comes with removable glass, backing and hanger.
Each of these unique photo frames are actually unique. In other words, you will be the only person who has this frame! Furthermore, it is a new frame every time you turn it a different way, and so, the included hanger is removable, so this beautiful wooden picture frame can be hung 4 different ways.
The wood for each picture frame in this shop was carefully hunted and harvested by the crafter, himself.
The only tools used to make this unique willow 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 elegant wood frame. It protects while preserving clarity and true color transmission, without the green tint of ordinary glass.
Each unique wooden photo frame, including this 8x10 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 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 of them. 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 8x10 frame, and the bulk of the work is performed by hand.
In short, Craig goes on a wood hunt, finds the wood, studies it for awesomeness, and then, using a table saw and a chisel, removes everything that doesn't look like a beautifully unique and amazing picture frame!
If you need 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), we happily do custom orders. Besides the popular frame / standard frame sizes typically among my listings, Craig can build a frame custom for you up to 11x14.
Thanks for your interest in this product, and for taking the time to read about the process.
