    alright, so, i'll cut to the chase here, basically, i need frames for some work i have to "present". im looking for something thats a very simple frame, painted black or normal wood color. i had a bunch sitting at work that i "acquired" from the returns because they had broken glass, i really just need the wood frames though, and i'd rather not spend an assload of money on then....but the ones i had at work were thrown out.


    so anyhow, in the "canvas" thread in paper chase joker posted some new work in some frames that actually look exactly like what i would need, including their dimensions, then stated that he made them rather than buying them because it was much cheaper. im all about being cheaper. so i mosied on down to the art store and they didnt have any framing supplies, went over to the framing shop, they didnt want to supply me with shit but were more than happy to suggest assraping me by framing all my work for me. thanks but no thanks.


    so does anyone know anything about framing work? if joker happens to see this, where did you get your frame supplies?



    sorry this is a little rushed right now, im listening to bane.

    there are alot of 'do it yourself' frame shops around the country. you go in, use their supplies and equipment, but put it together yourself.
    they can be pretty cheap.

    other than that, i duno.

    go to home depot.. buy some trim wood shaped like "L"<--that, cut it at 45 degrees, buy a 45 degree angle clamp, wood glue, thick stock poster poard, some hanging wire and some brad/mini nails.... you really should be able to figure it out.

    i would suggest the trim between the wall and floor. there are many options. nail or glue (or nail AND glue) small strips of wood on the back of this to fit your dimensions. if youre looking for the simple yet elegant look, just use two different sizes of small strips of wood. you can get the raw wood to paint and sand yourself, or the finished glossy ones that you can just repaint as you see fit. for the back to hold the shit in, all you need is some screws and flaps of some sort, which is eay to fashion out of scraps of the wood. not sure what youre looking for specifically. post pictures of intent for further advice if needed.

    Tyler... actually, those frames in question were already built. I bought them at IKEA for about $9 a piece. It's my larger pieces that I make frames for. And I just use wood from Home Depot. Nothing special. I could draw it out for you how I do it and email it to you if you're really interested. I use no glass though... for one reason. It makes the artwork unapproachable. If that makes sense.

    If you have smaller works, I really suggest IKEA for frames if you're on a budget. They look better than most cheap-ass frames at art stores and come in great sizes. Highly reccomended.
