BLACK WALNUT AND WESTERN MAPLE PHOTO FRAME
This lovely photo frame is handcrafted from Black Walnut with Western Maple inlay by Robert Jakobsen. The frame will take a 4" x 6" photo and comes complete with a stand that fits the reverse.
Robert is an artisan native to Nanaimo, British Columbia where he salvages much of the wood used in his work. Logs which are considered to have little market value (e.g. destined for firewood) are milled with a portable band saw mill. Robert works with local woods to illustrate the diversity and beauty of British Columbia's forest resources and the need for more attention to resource management. These frames are finished with three coats of rubbed polyurethane making for a very durable and attractive finish.
