I know we all talk about every type of paint mix and professional screen that could be out there, but I don't recall to many talking about where to get custom frames made to order. Anybody got any favorites? david

You can call any good finish carpentry outfit in your area and tell them what you are trying to do.


Specify that you want the wood to be Poplar about 3/4" X a 2 1/2" for the border with 2 vertical braces and 1 brace horizontally on either side of the vertical's.


To cut it and assemble would take me less than an hour's time.


Poplar is a inexpensive mostly knot free wood, doesn't split easily near the corner's when screwing the corner's together.


Good grade plywood is also OK but will require biscuit's and clamping and will probably cost more on assembly time.


I've never done it but a piece of MDF swiss cheesed with a skilsaw would do the trick if your on a serious budjet.
