We make our frames from 1.1 in. (28 mm) New Zealand white pine.
The mitered corners are strengthened with wood glue and two 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) x 1 in. (26 mm) dowels.
This makes the frames strong enough to hold the pyrographs flat and support their weight. The frames are finished with a clear satin, water-based, polyurethane.
The pyrographs are securely mounted in the frames with wedges and wire brads. The heads of the brads are left sticking-out to facilitate removal in the event reframing is desired.
Picture wire is secured to the frame with D-rings to allow the work to be hung from wall-mounted picture hooks. We recommend you use two hooks a minimum of two inches (51 mm) apart. This provides secure support and makes leveling easy.
