About

I have always had a big interest in Photograghy, even taking college courses in it in my younger days. I semi-retired a few months ago and now have the time I need to do things right. One of my pet peeves with printing my own photos was not being able to find a frame for my 81/2 X 11 photos without having to cut them down to fit 8 X 10 frames. I have access to weathered woodand old barn wood that is over 100 years old, that I use to make frames now, including frames that are 8 1/2 X 11 for self printed photos. . This wood is very unique in that no 2 frames will ever be alike, due the the way nature has treated the wood over the years that it has been standing in it.

I can make them about any size you would like, so if you don't see that size, let me know and I will make one and list it for you. Also, I include plexiglass, cardboard backing and all mounting hardware. The plexiglass is as clear as glass and much easier to ship. It is virtually unbreakable, and still serves the purpose. I am now also making tables, desks, shelving uhits and other items out of old barn wood. These I do stain or cover with Polyureathane to protect the beautiful markings and grain of the old wood. Thanks for looking and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
