HAND CRAFT WOODEN BOXES FOR CREMATION, URNS, MEMORIALS, KEEPSAKES, HEIRLOOMS AND SPECIAL EVENS
About Us | Contact Us
We are dedicated to the preservation of life's precious memories. Our frames, like our boxes, are hand crafted from solid wood that we mill ourselves. We create our own profiles on tools that we operate by hand. Most frame shops purchase lengths of frame stock that is manufactured elsewhere from composite materials, coated with formed veneer and then cut to size. We manufacture our own frames, hand cut our own mats, do our own mounting, practice preservation framing and do it at a fraction of the cost that most frame shops chage.
Representing "Peace and Harmony", this hand embroidered silk is from Vietnam. Our customer and her family immigrated here and wanted to preserve a piece of their heritage. Another precious memory successfully preserved!
Our customer was invited to the 2009 Presidential Inauguration and asked us to frame the invitation. The frame is hand crafted from solid wood with wooden pegs glued into the mitered corners for reinforcement. The frame was then coated with hand applied gilded gold leaf. Matting and mounting by Old Colony Woodworks. Another precious memory successfully preserved.
A historical recap of the Town of Scarborough, Maine one of the oldest incorporated towns in America, illustrated by a local artist. The recap makes note of "The King's Broad Arrow" and the marking of trees with three "axe strikes" during colonial times. The frame is made from "The King's Broad Arrow" Eastern White Pine and bears the axe strikes on the top left portion of the frame. More details are available in our February 2010 newsletter "Underneath The Sawdust".
