Picture frames in the Arts and Crafts style are traditionally made using mortise and tenon corner joints which are held together with square hardwood pegs, assuring that the frame will hold together for a very long time, very possibly for generations. The pegs are made of a contrasting color wood … and become an interesting construction feature (see joint detail photo). In the frame pictured the frame members are Danish oil finished quarter sawn red oak. Other wood choices available. The pegs shown are oiled cherry. Frames can be made in a wide range of sizes. The frame pictured, for example, has a live opening of 14 by 18 inches. Frames can be supplied with or without glazing. We recommend a non-glare, either glass or acrylic, material for best viewing regardless of room lighting. (Photo shown in frame is for example only). Pricing depends on overall size and special features.Read more Read less
Custom Natural Wood Picture Frames
by John Oct 16th 2012
I am a real estate broker and have clients coming in and out of my office all day. I am also a nature photographer who likes to capture small creatures on film—like frogs and turtles in wet places. I know the photos get a lot attention from my clients but now I can show them off on my office wall in a group of custom made frames from Jefferson Crafts. Ranging in size from 8"x10" to 16"x20", the frames, with their traditional craftsman styled joints and natural wood finishes, get as many admiring comments as the photos. I particularly like the newest one, a 16" x 20" frame made with African Ribbon Striped Mahogany and Adirondack style lap joints.
Maple Kitchen Dining Table
by Rhonda Oct 16th 2012
I asked Jefferson Crafts for a nice 30"x50" maple table for my kitchen and I got it within a couple of weeks. It has a beautiful, knot-free 1" thick top, tapered legs, smooth varnish finish and all. I'm very very happy with my table! Beautiful wood, craftsmanship, exactly what I envisioned it would be.
