Our Picture Frames
All of our picture frames are made from premium hardwood! No pressboard or MDF! We do not stain or paint any of our picture frames, but apply several finishing coats of lacquer to show off the natural wood grain.
Choose from 4 different woods (shown in the listing photos): Ambrosia Maple, Mahogany, Cherry, and Walnut. Please note that the wood grain will vary from box to box. Ambrosia maple wood varies greatly and can be very light with little variation or very dark with grain contrasts and worm holes. Cherry wood is our second lightest wood and is fairly consistent. Mahogany is a darker reddish wood. Walnut wood is our darkest, please note that walnut wood may not show engraving as well as the other woods.
Each picture frame is hand made. Choose to have an easel back or hardware installed to hang your frame. This picture frame holds an 8”x10” Photo, or you can add matt board to adjust for a smaller picture.
Overall dimensions: 12.75”x10.25”x.75”
Tips for Choosing the Right Wood
~ Detailed Engravings or Engravings with a lot of text: If you’re ordering a box with a detailed engraving, or an engraving with a lot of text, keep in mind that detailed engravings and smaller text shows up better on lighter colored wood (Ambrosia Maple or Cherry).
~Wood color and grain vary from piece to piece, even wood in the same species.
~Walnut wood, although normally darker, can have lighter contrast and the color can vary greatly.
~Ambrosia Maple wood, also known as Ghost Maple, also has varying color and grain. Although normally light, Ambrosia Maple wood is known for its dark grain contrasts, adding brown, gray, and bluish highlights to the wood. Ambrosia Maple wood also has worm holes. The worm holes and darker grain highlights come from the Ambrosia Beatle Inhabiting the tree before it was harvested, hence the name “Ambrosia Maple”.
~Cherry wood and Mahogany wood have the most consistent coloring, although Cherry wood will turn darker over time.
-We select specific cuts for each picture frame, but if you have a specific preference, would like a lighter piece of Walnut, an Ambrosia Maple piece with a lot of grain contrast, etc., please note your preference in the “Add Note to MJs4848” box in your cart and we will do our best to pick a piece to your request.
*Note: Please note the wood grains for all woods will vary from box to box, and the worm holes (a characteristic of Ambrosia Maple Wood) will vary from piece to piece.
