Mission Flush Corner Block Frame
This Mission frame is similar to the Mission Corner Block Frame number 2055. The difference being is the corners on this frame are flush to the rails. After seeing a frame like this in an Antique shop it inspired me to build and offer one like it. Each corner block is 2″ square for the 2″ rails and 3″ square for the three inch rails, both using blind mortise and tenon joinery. This style of frame will not only look great around any artwork, tile, photo, or poster, but it would also work well for that special ceramic tile.
The rails can be either two inches or three inches wide with each corner block measuring two or three inches square. Each corner is secured from the back using a dowel. Constructed of your choice of woods with quarter sawn oak being the most popular wood ordered. The top and bottom rails and side stiles are slightly recessed from each corner square block to better accent the corners. This Mission corner block frame is one of the few mortise and tenon frames that can easily be displayed in either the portrait or landscape orientation. The frame shown is displaying a matted greeting card created by Yoshiko Yamamoto which is not included in the price.
Each frame is hand finished in a way that will best emphasize the grain and enhance the wood’s texture and natural colors.
This is for a frame only, any content displayed in the frame is not included in the pricing.
