We use a number of simple profiles and woods for a contemporary look.
- American tulip wood is good for pale finishes and for painting.
- Ash and oak are open grained hardwoods and can be left untreated, waxed and polished, limed or stained.
- Maple and beech are close grained hardwoods. Maple is best left untreated once it has been sanded smooth while beech looks best when it is waxed and polished.
- American black walnut is expensive but polishes up to a deep sheen.
We also have a wide range of traditional mouldings – ornate, gilded and distressed antique finishes as well as a number of historical moulding styles for framing 18th, 19th and early 20th century works.
We are happy to advise as to which is the most suitable for your artwork.
