If you want a plain and simple frame, I can not compete with the
prices at Target or Hobby Lobby. However, if you want
something special, odd sizes, different shapes, or exotic woods,
they can not compete with me. And I will always win on quality
because I provide a lifetime guarantee on all my work.

This client wanted their builder's grade, frameless bathroom mirror spiced up a bit. I added a decorative frame, while cutting down and reusing their existing mirror. The final product measures 43"w x 41"h x 1"d and features a beveled profile and an inlaid band of quilted maple and bubinga.
Included installation reusing the existing mirror.

Here, the client had an antique table that they wished to repurpose
some of the pieces. The frame is made from the old table
aprons, which I cut down to size. The corner blocks were the
existing feet. I built a sub-frame from pine on which
everything is securely mounted. The client also repurposed the
mirror. The client chose to do all the finish
18"w x 27"h x 2"d.
Your project may differ depending on what you repurpose and how much I have to do.
Typically, I would recommend you get your framing done by your local Hobby Lobby. However, if you want something very special, perhaps an odd shape or an exotic wood, you will need to go the custom route. This 12"w x 10"h x 3/4"d frame is made of mahogany with quilted maple inlaid banding and walnut corner "keys" for rigidity. Glass and matt were also provided.
Stained Glass Framing
Your stained glass looks good, but it needs a wood frame to make it look great and add that professional, finishing touch. You can have your choice of any wood, any edge profile, and any hanging method. I will make your frame to precisely fit your artwork.

Odd Shaped Framing
It would be extremely lucky if you could find a round frame at the store. If you did, it would probably be a size that wouldn't work for you. Everything I make is custom, so special shapes are no problem. The piece of art was designed to be viewed from both sides, so the frame needed to be seamless on both sides. The frame was made in two overlapping segments so the art could installed and secured. It was screwed together with large head screws, which are designed to receive white sticker caps. Once the frame is painted (by the client in this case), the screw heads will be nearly invisible. This frame is made from poplar and was big, 50" diameter and 1 1/2" thick.
Other sizes and shapes may differ
If you're a painter, you'll know what these are. For smaller canvases, you'd do better buying them from you're local hobby outlet. But for large or odd sizes or special shapes, call me. These are built from clear pine 1x2's. The corners have plywood brackets to keep the frame square, and they're notched into the frame to keep the overall thickness down. The intermediate supports cross with a half-lap joint for strength. I can provide you just the frames, I can stretch the canvas for you, and I can prime them if you like.
