Australia’s most commonly known variety of hardwood timber Vic Ash / Tasmanian Oak is a light coloured timber with tones ranging from neutrals to subtle pink tones. It is well suited to these historical maps and posters and compliments a wide variety of interior decors.
As a frame making timber only the highest appearance grade is used and we finish by applying a natural clear coat the timber is then hand finished with a special blend of hard-drying beeswax and carnauba wax. The final coat is carefully hand applied and buffed. This ensures an even soft satin sheen. Our frames present beautifully when finished and the oil and beeswax help accentuate their natural grain and features.
