Our best selling moulding of 2012

Our best selling frame moulding of 2012 was this simple natural wood profile with a hand applied dark wax.  Many customers seemed to like the simple clean lines and natural finish. The wood is ash which I like using as, although it is quite hard, cuts very well and has an attractive grain.

The grain varies quite a bit depending on how the original wood was positioned when the moulding was milled, and the finish you get is dependant on the visible grain pattern picking up the wax. When applied the wax is quite soft but is soon dry and it buffs up into a nice hard finish.  The picture above shows the moulding being used with a canvas, in this case a plain one used for photographs for our on-line store.
