Announcement    Welcome to Ray and Karen's shop- We have Picture Frames, and Cribbage boards, cutting boards and wood burning art that we have made in our wood shop.

As of April 1,2019 Ray and Karen have reopened this shop since we finally moved but he is limited in what he can make as he has a health issue that has slowed him down tremendously. Please convo if you’d like to see something specific and thank you for patience.

Shipping is priority mail. Sometimes I put in the wrong size and sometimes Etsy decides I will ship differently, and comes up with a whacky price for shipping PLEASE MESSAGE ME BEFORE YOU RUN!!! I will fix it!! And If I over charge you, I will refund In the same manner the item was paid for.

Priority has insurance on the order so be sure to take pictures if ever an item comes damaged. Print off your receipt and take it to your local post office. SAVE ALL OF THE PACKING so it shows I did a good job and you will get a refund! We will send out another shipment ASAP usually as soon as you get the claim we have them remade so communicate! This has only happened a few times.

If you have any questions or requests please feel free to convo us! Karen often does the conversations as Ray is pretty computer-illiterate. Thank you for looking. A lot of the frames Ray makes more than one at a time so often We have several from the same wood and would look similar... if you are looking for a set, ASK!! We may be able to help you out.

About RayAndKarenFrames

Sales 2,559
On Etsy since 2008

Karen & Rays Woodworking

Ray started making frames, cutting boards and even some furniture after we helped our builder, Jay Costa, built our house in 2004. Since then he has broadened his sizes from strictly 8x10 and 11x14 to 5x7 and up to any normal size. up to 18x24 He will make custom size frames too if possible. He is disabled so time is the only issue, he works limited hours.
Karen is part owner- takes pictures puts on the listings and postage/shipping. Ray on occasion will answer a conversation but most of those are also Karen!
Austin helps his dad move lumber, unload lumber, search online for lumber, drill out the cribbage board holes and other things that help his dad out. He used to make the kitchen utensils but also has a job and his own home.
We recently sold the home we raised our kids in, and moved to a new home but in the transition Ray had a change in his health that has slowed him down. He has his shop back but is limited as to how long he can work in it. If you’d like to see specific frames again give a Holler in convos and we can see if he can do!

Frequently asked questions

Does This frame include glass or backing

No we do not include glass or backing
Glass would take more care and cost to ship and is easily obtained at a windshield shop for the same price we pay.
Backing is subjective to what the buyer is putting in the frame and since we don’t know what it is or how thick we do not include the backing. It can be a piece of cardboard or foam board recycled

Will my art work fit?

The back of the frame has about 1/2” thick rabbit cut where the mat, backing ,art or canvas goes.
Honestly the back doesn’t have to look pretty. On the wall you only see the front!
However in the old days people covered the back with paper.

How do I keep my art in place?

There are no tabs on the back because we have no way of knowing if you are putting a picture and glass or three deep mat, picture and glass or a canvas that sticks out.
Buyer is able to use a drill and put holes that are half the length of finish nails in the right place and slide the nails in to hold their art in place. Painters tape also works and does not mark up the wood. Or buyer can find a local framer to install professionally.

If I buy more frames can I get a deal

These frames are handmade and not made by bulk so we are making money on the sale and this selling more for less is counterproductive but we do put frames together to ship less expensively and ALWAYS refund overages of more than &3.00

Why is shipping so high for more than one or two frames?

Etsy does make mistakes estimating shipping when two or three or more frames are put together in an order. The box estimated is often huge and unnecessary.
I ALWAYS refund overages of more than $3.00
If you are getting a extremely high shipping estimate either you live a long way from Maine or this has happened and you can contact me to make a multi frame order for you to purchase and avoid the refund.
