Yes, we use real hockey TWIGS to make these picture frames. What better way to display your action shot, team picture, hockey card or autographed picture. We leave all of the imperfections on the used sticks, tape marks, puck marks, cracks and chipped paint. No two frames are ever the same and there are plenty of imperfections due to the nature of the beat up raw materials that we use. You will love them, give them as a coaches gift or to the team Mom. Frames come with an board easel on the back. The puck easel shown is not included. We will try to accommodate as many frame color requests that we can.
