Frames

Our high-quality frames are precision cut from Eastern White Pine and resist splitting better than other varieties of wood. Top Bars are available in a "wedge" and "groove" style. Our Side Bars are 3/8" thick and are pre-drilled to accept eyelets or support pins. Our Bottom Bars are grooved to fit all foundation types.

Choose from Commercial, Budget, and Economy Grades.

  • Commercial frames have clear premium wood. They are free of knots and offer a precise fit.
  • Budget frames offer excellent value. They may have some blemishes and small knots but are strong and high quality.
  • Downgrade, compared to our commercial and budget grades, has lower-grade wood, loose or missing knots, and other manufacturing blemishes. However, they have the same fit as the other grades and will make a serviceable frame.

     "Wedge" top bars are used with wax foundation.
    "Groove" top bars are used with plastic foundation.
