What Is A Closed Corner Custom Picture Frame

The Cadillac of all custom picture framing mouldings is the “Closed Corner” custom picture frame. A closed corner frame means exactly that. There is no corner seam. Most custom picture frames are created by cutting and mitering the picture frame moulding to the desired length for the picture being framed. The four mitred lengths of picture frame moulding are then glued in the corners and tightly joined on a 90 degree mitre vise. After all four corners are glued, joined and v-nailed from the bottom side of the frame moulding, you now have a joined picture frame. However, you can still see the corner seam where the two lengths of picture frame moulding are joined. The picture framer now tries to fill in the seam gap with various types of putties and creams. The end result is always satisfactory.

With custom closed corner picture frames the frame builder joins raw wood to the required size for the picture frame. The picture frame wood can be carved with a pattern and appliques can be applied to the picture frame corners. Regardless of technique and design done, the design pattern is symmetrical on the picture frame and all four frame corners have the same balanced pattern. Leafing and toning , as described in prior paragraph, is done the same way.
