Hardwood framing; red oak, walnut, cherry or mahogany are available. Framing charges
are usually $5 to $10 per foot depending on wood species and size. I make the framing
directly from unfinished wood stock myself.
Photos of some stained glass design features.
On the Left: Solder, at the intersection of the lead came lines, should be
just a drop of solder on the came.
In the Center: The brass hanging hook, used when the outer edge is just the
zinc came. It is securely soldered to the zinc frame.
On the Right: I make my wood frames myself. The photo shows an oak frame stained
with Minwax Provincial stain and coated with a low luster polyurethane protective coat.
This frame is for a small hanging and uses a brass side hook. Larger hangings use a brass
screw eye that is positioned on the top of the frame about 1.5" in from the edge.
