Mouldings and Finishes

All our mouldings are milled to our own specifications and we are not restricted to a small number of standard profiles. This makes it possible for us to mill new shapes when a customer needs something quite specific.

The woods that we use are ash, cherry, larch, beech, birch, lime, oak, maple, sapele, tulip and walnut. All of these come from renewable sources. No tropical woods are used.

We use a variety of methods in the construction of frames using the most appropriate for each size and type of wood. Our frames are joined for maximum strength in a way that prevents any opening at the corners that can often happen over time.

We offer a range of stained and spray painted finishes. Some woods can be sanded smooth and left plain, others can be stained, sealed and waxed, others to a lacquered high gloss. We have samples that show all the variations of colour and types of wood.
