This incredible looking diploma, made especially for Canisius College diplomas, is a cherry frame to be proud of. It has a traditional look that speaks volumes with its natural wood grain and warmth.
Stand out from typical office outfitted with mass produced frames. This is truly the only frame exactly like this in the world.
Mother nature see to that.
Each of my handmade frames starts with a piece of raw lumber in my shop. I mill, route,sand and finish each one through a series of 10 individual steps. Only the frames that pass every expectation make it to the selling phase.
I glue and v-nail every frame together to ensure you don't face split corners a year or so down the road.

"These were Father's Day gifts for my husband to hang his two Master degrees.

We will buy more from Al and hope his does Phd frames. Thank you Al for you care and attention to detail."

I welcome all inquiries about custom frames. I do more custom work than standard sized frame work, so I am up for the challenge. Feel free to e-mail with questions about wood types, designs, mat colors and sizes (or if you just need a mat only) and finishes.
