Each of these beautifully unusual wood picture frames is actually a unique frame.

​In other words, you will be the only person who has your particular artisan wood frame!

Furthermore, it is a new frame every time you turn it a different way. Because of this, the included hanger is removable, so you can hang your handcrafted custom wood frame however you like it best.

Flex-points allow easy removal of glass and backing, and special stands can be included for displaying your unique wood frame on a flat surface.

All of Craig’s unusual wood frames make unique portrait frames, for say, a family portrait (especially if you have a “unique” family, like some of us…).​

These “live edge” frames are also a wonderful wedding gift or wood gift for a 9th anniversary (the diamond willow wood frames are a popular seller for that occasion), and are a different frame every time you turn them! And yes, they can be hung any of four ways, due to the glass, hardboard backing and hanger all being quickly and easily removeable.

The pricing for each of these handcrafted wood picture frames is determined by:​

a) the time put in to making it

b) the size of the glass

c) the amount and type of wood used (some of the wood, such as the diamond willow wood, and some driftwood, is harder to find and/or more difficult with which to work).​

  1. Craig, you are creating some amazing frames! If ordered should I expect the smaller frames to take less time to be created and delivered or is it about the same amount of time for creating and delivering the unique frame? Do you always have repurposed wood available or does it take longer if you request that type of wood? Thanks Brian

    • Hey, Brian.

      If you were to order a custom frame, it wouldn’t make much difference in the time it takes, except that with say a 5×7 frame, I may have enough around to do it, where with a 11×14, for example, I would more likely have to make a wood trek. But that has to be done periodically anyway, and it only takes half a day.

      It is all “repurposed” wood, really. I always find the wood myself and haul it in.

  2. The frames are beautiful.  I do quite a bit of nature photography.  These wooden frames would compliment the photos I take.  Also, I think they will make beautiful gifts.  I have a daughter who lives in the redwoods in California.  These frames would really compliment her home.  I am going to bookmark this site for future reference when I need gifts.  These custom fames are beautiful.

    • Thank you very much, Anastazja. Yes, they are very often purchased for gifts. And I very much enjoy taking nature shots, as well!

  3. Wow!

    These are SO COOL!!!

    In a world of such boring uniformity…what a relief to see such beauty!  They would look so incredible in so many different settings.  Something like this in a super modern, all white and chrome room would be MAGNIFICENT!  And, like-wise, it would elevate a log cabin to unexpected heights of fancy.  As well as everything in between!

    So glad I came across this.  It really brightened my day!



    • Thank you Anna! 

      Boring uniformity, indeed! 

      Many people I think would have a hard time associating these frames with an all white and chrome room, but I love that you are able to picture it, and that you see it as being perfectly appropriate (not to mention “magnificent” :O…)!

      This rather brightens my day, as well. 😉

  4. This has to be the funniest website I have seen.  First, I was blown away and speechless admiring the novel and BEEEEUUUUtiful frames. No actually, first I was blown away looking at the video of the frames.  Then, I was blown away by the stills of the frames.  And that they can be turned in different directions to give a new look is a first. It’s almost like having four frames for the price of one.    To me, anyway.  I know it is said that there is nothing new under the sun, but I have not heard of anything like this.  Do you determine what kind of wood will be used or are customers allowed to request it?

    I have a mirror surrounded by wood…it has colors on it.  One of your frames would complement this look nicely.

    I think that in addition to Craig being an amazing artisan, he is also a comedian.  The beaver dam pirate ship story…while looking for a damsel.  Well, I am laughing out loud.  And that country he thinks only he knows about.  Not true, I saw him there gathering wood.  Finally, Craig, or whoever is reading this.  I know for a fact that God does not believe in atheists.  He even asked me, “what are THEY? lol

    I thoroughly enjoyed this site.  I am looking forward to my purchase of one of these amazing frames.

    • Thank you very, very much, Hazel!

      And this is Craig. I’m glad you found the stories humorous and that you appreciate the frames.  Blessings!

      • Oh, and to answer your question, the customers can request the type of wood, but I mostly just use willow, poplar and driftwood and root wood, because it is what is most available where I live.
