Here is a frame I made for my friend’s 9X12 oil painting on canvas mounted on 3/4 inch frame. there are some paintings where my frames just complete and complement the oil painting. Western scenes and old building just seem to work best with a rugged barnwood frame. I use real barnwood, too. Not that distressed frame material.
Some people asked how I joined my corners. I forgot that I sometimes use V-nails, too, instead of brads or staples. V-nails work better in frames that are not thick enough to handle a pneumatic staple or brad. There is no set way to work with barnwood; each piece dictates how it will be joined.
