Framed Map.

This Bespoke Elm Picture Frame perfectly frames this old Map, a recent commission for a gift.

I try to get the Wood i use to complement the artwork, I think these two work quite well together, I have used Pit Sawn Elm for this, it dates back 500 yrs or so.

Pit Sawing was replaced by mechanical means in the 1780’s, the tree would have been at least 200 yrs old before it was cut down, random saw marks on the timber are an easy way to try to date the wood.
