Frame Construction

Consists of kiln dried hardwood or 9 ply hardwood laminate for structural integrity. Depending on the style, frame assembly may include tenon joints, puzzle joints, dowels, glue and screws to create frames which exceed industry standards. Frames are assembled by hand at our on-site frame facility. Vertical integration and on-site constructions are conclusive to alterations in order to meet a specific need.

Classic Techniques

Steel coil springs are individually fitted to each frame and 8-way hand tied to prevent shifting. Depending on the style, sinuous springs, high quality webbing or pocketed coils may be used.
Exposed wood parts are sanded, filled, stained and finished with a high quality catalyst lacquer. St. Timothy finishes comply with all EPA regulations.
Master carving machines create beautiful exposed wood frames. Upholstery options may include hand set brass nails, welt trim or our time honored hand tufting methods.
