OBECHE  OBECHE: highly recommended for paint, lime, stain or polish -  or leave plain (natural)

Obeche and Tulipwood frames take paint or stain very well indeed, and we use these as first choice all our own custom paint finished frames. Many of our shop counter customers asked for plain "to paint" frames, and so we have a range of the most popular here which you can buy online.    As supplied to TV "makeover" shows.  We make the frames, you supply the colour and you also save s.  Just order "Plain" options where available. All the following styles are available plain, or with various finishes.

Photo/details of pine in various finishes

Pine can contain knots.  Forested in Sweden or Russia, the amount of knots in the wood can vary from knot-free to a knot every 20-25cm or so. It is suitable for staining or waxing, and can be painted, but you will need to use "stopper" or primer on any knots so they don't show through. (These profiles are also available in obeche, which is highly recommended for easy painting)

ASH: Highly recommended for staining/liming/polish and dark paint/stain  (eg for "black ash")





Ash Frames   info / get a price


American Ash. Forested in North America. Grain can vary from tightly-packed to very open, it is a hard, durable timber, very suitable for lining or waxing and some paints. Note that white paint on ash may "yellow" slightly. So we do not recommend Ash for painting white.
