Custom Picture Frames

It's hard to find a picture that does picture frames justice. But then, I guess that's because the frames are there to do the pictures justice - ha ha. Lots of friends have asked for frames for their walls - they want to match their decor, fit a funny picture, etc. without having to go through the expense of a framing service at a craft store or something.

Mostly I've made these Custom Picture Frames out of pine, with a rectangle cross section, but that's not all I can do. Other frame-type projects I've done include magnet boards, magnetic chalk boards, shadow boxes, etc. Typically glass and backing is not included. Most photographers recommend a protective coating instead of glass anyway. Unless it's a custom size, you can just buy a frame at the dollar store and use the glass and backing from that.

Ask my wife sometime if you want the full story on our picture wall. Let's just say it involved cutting of my fingernail in the tablesaw, putting off her frames to make some for clients, refiguring what we wanted the frames to look like, etc etc etc. Years in coming before she finally got her frames. I'm sorry to say my clients get much better service.

Price: see list on my home page for standard sizes. Custom Picture Frames of the style shown are $0.25 per inch of perimeter of frame for other sizez. For example, a frame for a 10x10 picture, with 2.5" wide sides, would have a perimeter of 60 inches (10+2.5+2.5)x4 and would cost $15.
