Our Legacy frames
are constructed from 3 inch quartersawn oak stock and finished in
our four step Signature process that provides a beautiful patina that will
last for years to come. The frames were designed primarily for
framing our large selection of Motawi and Porteous tiles but can
be used to frame anything you wish. The frames are beveled slightly toward the
middle to enhance your viewing of the subject matter. Legacy
also available with dividers for framing multiple subjects.
The frames have
mitered corners that are joined using a biscuit to provide a strong,
long-lasting joint. Read more about our frame construction

The standard medium
brown Signature finish that is used primarily here at Dard Hunter
Studios has taken us many years to perfect. It is a four step
process, the final of which is a hand rubbed wax, just like
Stickley used on his furniture. This gives our work the patina of
a well seasoned family heirloom that will withstand sunlight and
wear and provide beauty and enjoyment for years to come.
We also offer, as a
special order, a lighter Golden Oak finish (pictured
at left). The Golden Oak finish
is just a shade darker than natural oak and provides a beautiful
alternative for those who would like to match lighter finished
furniture or just prefer the look of a more natural wood. For more
information or to order please call us at (740) 774-1236 or toll
free at (800) 986-3273. There is no extra charge for this service
and all of our products are available in this finish.
