Here are my arts and crafts frames with Roycroft style font and designs. Some are decoration for my healthcare practice, and some are Christmas gifts.
Stains range from chestnut Rodda thinned 50%, cherry Minwax, to dark walnut Varathane.
Cheers!

Thanks Jim, they are fun little projects. They accept 11×14 standard matting, so they are pretty easy to put together.

Very nice job on the frames; nice colors on the finish. Are these fonts that you purchased or downloaded?

Tim,
The font set is available from the P22 Foundry. You download it into your writing program, and it appears as a new font choice. Additionally you receive characters and A & C style designs based off the original Roycroft printing press. Included is the Dard Hunter rose motif, one of the most recognized bit of graphic art from the early 1900’s. From there I worked up my page layout and printed the mottos on 20# ivory linen paper.
Pretty fun project.
Thanks

Thanks, Willie, that a neat site. I book marked it for future reference, if I need to do any lettering.

Willie, these are beautiful. I am wondering how I could purchase two or three of them. I couldn’t navigate to a place where I would find them available for purchase. Thanks for the sayings they are very uplifting and coupled with the craftsman style framing, they are priceless…. Chris Martin

Just found these craft frames, they came out really nice. When you bought the fonts did you buy the whole package, or were there just a couple that you needed?

Also, I have admired a lot of your other A & C pieces, are they all QSWO and what type of finish are you using? Thanks

Horsch,
These were quartered red oak, but I use a lot of white oak too. I usually use Rodda oil based stains and sprayed lacquer. I am using Rudd lacquer right now.
