Our Mortise and Tenon Frames are beautifully hand finished from quarter sawn White Oak. Constructed with true mortise and tenon joinery. Read more about our frame construction here. Frame stiles are 3 inches on the horizontal and 2 inches on the vertical. Square frames use wider wood pieces on all four sides.
All of our frames are made in our 6,000 square foot workshop by one of our five craftsmen. Dard Hunter, III hand selects every piece of quarter sawn White Oak to ensure optimal ray flake in every frame. Once the selection is made, he then turns the board into one of 5 moulding profiles which are then cut, joined, sanded and finished. Any wood that does not meet his meticulous standards is made into flooring, accounting for approximately 25% of our annual consumption of Oak. We purchase several thousand board feet of quarter sawn Oak at one time allowing us volume discount pricing which we pass on to our customers by producing the finest Mission style frame available at an affordable price.
*Always look for our Dard Hunter Studios Rose Logo branded into the wood on the back of the frame, as your assurance that this is the 100% genuine article*
