Recycling is our philosophy as we source materials from domestic and industry “waste” for our bark edge frames. We collect log face cuts, old fences, window frames, skirting boards, demolition scrap etc anywhere we can find it. The above image is Esperance’s West beach framed in burnt edge Karri timber from an old Bunbury jetty. Full slider image above “Out Of Fuel” Cowaramup framed in burnt edge Karri.
Our on-line Marketplace displays hand made frames as well as images of the South West of Western Australian region and beyond for sale. As such we like to think of ourselves as a one stop shop where you can find a beautiful image, unframed or framed upon request, for that special place in your home or office.

Timber Framing Choices
West Australian Marri Red Gum (above) is a very versatile timber that has broad appeal. It is currently ‘on trend’ due to its lighter tone and silky lustre. In addition, it offers a wide spectrum of colour and moods and it’s varied texture can have a rustic appearance as well as a finely dressed luminosity that can suit almost any decor.
West Australian Jarrah (above) is Australia’s most celebrated hard wood. It was the initial go to resource for early settler expansion and industry. Old growth Jarrah is now so coveted it is the first to be salvaged from demolition sites to be reclaimed and recycled. Painting over Jarrah these days is considered sacrilege. Older Jarrah is dark while younger timber has a warm ochre tone with both having a beautiful ingrained texture. Image – “Lefties” Gracetown WA.
West Australian Sheoak (above) got its name from early settlers to Australia due to its similarities to European Oak. However, the ‘she’ was in reference to its ‘inferior’ mid size stature and less robust structure. Sheoak is a mid tone timber and is similar in colour to Jarrah but has a beautiful pronounced curly grain texture that has an individuality all of its own.

West Australian Karri (above) is another hard wood and is the largest tree species in WA. Due to its tall straight growth pattern and majestic size it was highly valued during early nation building and today its grandeur continues to be featured in tourist campaigns profiling WA’s south west forests. Karri is another warm toned timber which can also include distinctive pinkish hues that can vary greatly in shade depending on its original age. Image – Elephant Rock Greens Pool Denmark WA.
A tall hard wood species, West Australian Tuart (above) was highly prized during early settlement and as a result heavily harvested. It is light in colour, similar to honey oak but was unusually hard making it very durable in harsh conditions. The example above shows timber that has been infested by wood Bora worms which has left an attractive pattern. Image – “Right Time Right Place” Cowaramup WA.
Customers often wish to incorporate more than a single image into a frame of their choice. Multiple images designed and positioned well can tell a familial ‘story’ in an inspiring way. Choosing to frame more than one image can suit a variety of budgets and solve that ever constant problem of finding enough wall space. Timber used above – Marri Red Gum.
