Ephraim’s frames are made in very much the same way that woodworkers did in the early 20th century. Quarter-sawn white oak is carefully selected, paying special attention to the direction of the grain and the character of the wood. Then comes the intricate process of cutting, planing, and sanding.

Our logo is burned into the back, which also features a keyhole notch for hanging.  Learn more about our process
