While we are well grounded in the principles and practices of traditional picture framing our stock and trade is in producing unique framing inspired and created of materials sourced from nature itself.
We also understand that not everyone might want a truly rustic frame surrounding their image,
but may still prefer the warmth and naturally classic look of a simple timber surround.
So we also produce straightforward, furniture finished mouldings from the more interesting and
popular local timbers of the Appalachains. This includes regularly sourced materials from
demolitions of local and historic buildings and structures including old docks, bridges, old
farm outbuildings, barns and fences. From these materials we produce a good range of our
own, simple timber frame profiles of natural hard and softwoods.
Our stocked profiles range from 20 to 120mm wide and are of varying thicknesses. They
are fabricated to best show the warm colours and intricate grains of the timbers themselves.
Our stock of timbers changes regularly, dependent upon availability, and can typically
include various oaks, walnuts, ash and cherry as well as cedars and some pine species
from the local area and beyond. If we don't make the size you require as part of our stock
we will do our best to fabricate it for you on premises. We even work with your BYO
timber when possible.
The production of our unique rustic picture frames requires a marriage of the most basic framing techniques
with the latest in modern tooling and framing technology.
The process is complicated and involved and differs from one type of timber to another, with each
frame being unique in its own right.
Once the frame is created it then goes through a process of finishing that is the same as that
employed on fine furniture. The end result we strive for is to enhance your own or chosen
artwork without overwhelming it. Here is the chance to acquire your own unique piece of décor
for your home, your workplace or as that special gift.

We advise that our SHOWCASE currently contains mainly works from the last couple of years produced in Australia from Australian timbers.
We will gradually update this with our latest works from American timbers as they become available. This will be a learning
process for us and we welcome the challenge.
Mirrors are one of the most practical pieces of home or office décor. Surrounding them with a natural timber frame,
be it a simple profile or unique rustic shape, can add a special feeling to an entrance foyer or room as well as providing
We produce mirrors to most sizes. This can vary considerably, and with regard to Rustic Framing is sometimes
dependent upon the timber used. We say this because, by nature, not all rustic timbers come in long, straight lengths.
Even so we will strive to do our best to source the look you are after.
