What to Know Before You Buy a Wood Picture Frame

Wood photo frames are a favorite choice for displaying special photos however there are a few drawbacks that you should know about. Before you shop for that perfect wood picture frame, you need to be aware of these four pitfalls.

Pitfall #1- Be Careful of Mistaken Identity
When shopping for a wood picture frame, you need to understand the difference between the three types of wood frames: solid wood frames, composite wood frames and wood veneer frames. These differences are important because the cost of the wood frame will vary depending upon the material used to make it.

Solid wood frames don't need any explaining but composite wood frames are made out of tiny wood pieces glued together with a special adhesive. Decorative frames, frames with beaded borders, decorative round frames or oval frames are all made of composite wood. It's the most economical and quality conscious way to create a decorative wood edge without the high cost of hand carving or the poor appearance of glue-on wood ornamentation. Inexpensive "wood frames" are also made of composite wood which is why some people associate low quality with composite wood. However, composite doesn't have to mean inexpensive or inferior quality or workmanship. It is simply a more environmentally friendly and superior way to create decorative and ornate wood frames.

Wood veneer gives the real look of an expensive or rare wood without having to waste limited resources. Wood veneer is a thin sliver of real wood glued to a less expensive type of solid wood. In some cases, the veneer is glued to composite wood. The gorgeous look of an exotic or burl wood is a good example of when a wood veneer is often used. High end hardwoods are very expensive and theres no point in having a solid burl wood frame when you can only see the outside. A veneer of an exotic or expensive hardwood will allow more frames to be made with this limited resource and is an economical way to make a unique and beautiful wood frame.

Pitfall #2- Wood is Not Perfect
Many people dont stop to think that wood is from nature, with all its imperfections. Do not expect your wood frame to be perfect because wood naturally has variations. For most people it's the color variations, natural wood grain and natural imperfections (like wood knots) that make wood frames beautiful. High quality frame manufacturers minimize these variations as much as possible, but be aware that they can occur.

Pitfall #3- Sensitivity of Unfinished Wood
You may already be aware of this pitfall if you have purchased unfinished wood pieces before but unfinished wood can easily be damaged. Unfinished frames are made of raw wood with no protective lacquer or coating to seal the wood and protect the frame from damage. Usually most wood frames are "finished" so the best way to spot an unfinished frame is to feel the texture of the frame. Unfinished wood frames can easily be damaged by water or any sticky or oily substance that may come into direct contact with the frame. Be especially careful with water or greasy fingerprints as they can leave a mark on the unfinished wood frame that can be difficult to fix.

Pitfall #4- Misleading Colors
Wood frame manufacturers describe frames with words like walnut, rosewood, cherry and teak. Don't think of the wood type as being the material used to make the frame. It's just easier to help people understand the actual color of the frame by relating it to a recognized wood color. Most frames are simply stained these colors but are rarely made out of solid wood like cherry or walnut. Usually if a frame is made out of a solid wood, the description will say solid walnut or solid teak. If it doesnt say this, it is most likely stained that color. Reading the frame description carefully or asking the frame retailer is the best way to know for sure if you are looking at a solid walnut frame, for example, or a wood frame stained a walnut color. Also, solid wood like teak, cherry or walnut will be considerably more expensive than staining a wood frame made out of a less epxensive wood.

By remembering and avoiding these potential pitfalls when buying a wood frame, you'll be able to find a wood frame that's exactly what you want.
