Topic tags/keywords: trim wood oak antique picture frame for sale

Took a job cleaning out a photo studio that was locked up in 1947 and never opened. I am now the proud owner of a whole lot of boards (too many to count right now), anywhere from 1/4 to 6” widths and 6-10 foot lengths. Most are already routed into different picture frame shapes but not cut to length, and some is painted. Would make really nice antique picture frames or other projects.

Boards have been stored inside with humidity control until yesterday, I would to sell as much as possible before the weather gets it.
Located in Maryland, near Bel Air.
$250, gets you the priveledge of protecting this once in a lifetime find.

Please let me know if anyone is interested.

I would be careful of the painted stuff! I would think it could contain LEAD!

Lead, schmead. That’s a great find. I don’t know that I’d want all of it myself, but I’d love to have a look at what you have. Never know, I might be able to con the boss into grabbing it up. I’m in PA, maybe an hour from you
