This genuine solid oak hardwood picture frame is made in the USA and offers a strong, substantial, and wide profile that features open grain on a flat surface, and a deep rabbet to accommodate stretched canvas paintings in addition to other thick materials. The profile width is 2 ¼”, and the rabbet depth is 1”.
The benefits of selecting this solid oak picture frame are vast, as the profile is deep enough to build up layers, such as matting a floated watercolor with deckled edges, and it may also accommodate shallow shadowbox frames, perhaps with 1”walls. Additionally, the strength of solid oak in this profile width is enough to handle very heavy objects, from thick mirrors to heavy relief paintings.
Subject matter that may pair with this oak hardwood picture frame includes simple and soft-spoken nature art, from fall foliage to wildlife, and may also complement patriotic themes such as folk art that features the American flag.
Other forms of art that may be framed in this hardwood picture frame include matted works on paper, from original fine art prints to poster reproductions, and drawings, watercolor paintings, collage, and more.
For the DIY enthusiast, consider decorating this frame to complement a theme. For example, this genuine solid oak hardwood picture frame could be used to frame a custom-made chessboard, or it could be carved with hand tools or a rotary tool to make a truly unique art frame.
