Construction

1.  Equipment
A wide variety of tools are required in the construction of picture frames, including, but not limited to hand tools such as hammers, saws, glass cutters, knives, screw drivers; plus a variety of glues and adhesives.  Power tools, such as saws, drills, and routers, are commonly found in most workshops.  There are a number of specialty tools, such as heat presses, framing jigs, an moulds that are employed for unique and specialty framing requirements.

2.  Materials
Picture frames are constructed primarily of wood, metal, glass, wire, and plastic.  The type and amount of material depends on what is being framed and the customer’s requirements.

3.  Time and Labor
The time required to construct a frame depends on the availability of the materials and type of constructions methods needed to complete the frame.  Rare or difficult to find materials can delay the construction, as can specialty resins that require time to set-up and cure.  High quality, custom frames can require time to complete, but results are well worth the time and cost.
