Welcome to dickblick
Now it's easy to bring the classic presence of custom wood frames to your artwork with these Ayous Wood Frame Kits. They are crafted of imported Italian woods and designed with a contemporary flat top profile for an attractive gallery look. The perfect depth for framing canvas, photographs, posters, or other artwork.
Kit includes one pair of wood sections and two plastic wedges. Choose two kits to create the custom frame you need. Easy assembly, no tools required.
Dimensions for the Nielsen Bainbridge Ayous Wood Frame Kits are as follows:
Frame Depth — The depth of a frame refers to the depth of the frame's rabbet (the cut-out area behind the frame's molding that holds your artwork in place). To find a frame that will accommodate your artwork, measure the depth of the artwork, including any matting or mounting materials, and order a frame with a depth that is, at a minimum, the same as that measured depth.
Frame Dimensions — Frames are sized by the opening, not by the outside of the molding. To determine the size of frame to order, measure the outside of your artwork, including mat, and order that size frame. The frame will overlap your artwork ¼" all the way around, so your artwork will fit nicely behind the frame's molding.

Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Ayous Wood Frame Kits:
I used Neilson Banbridge Framing Kits for last minute frames for my odd sized oil canvas paintings. Not only was the choices of sizes convenient but the wood finish was so well done that I don't think I would use any other product. It was too late and time pressed to be able to glue them at the corners so I thought we could just put the back corner stays in, 3 per corner, temporarily. Voila! No gaps were visible and the structure was solid as is. (I will glue them after the show)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nielsen Bainbridge Ayous Wood Frame Kits
from westfield , nc
great for photography , very clean and solid frame with nice hardware.
Do not order the black paint.
By Love Cats
from Ashburn, VA
Paint chips extremely easily. While I had great luck with the plain wood, the black paint comes off like old nailpolish. They also did not quite align properly. I'll be sanding and refinishing this, but that defeats the purpose of easy assembled frames.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Over priced and hard to put together - frame kit
from Sonoma County, CA.
This frame kit is just ok. It has 4 pieces plus the 4 pegs that you put together. It is not easy and one needs to be very careful or it will not look good or be correct when you are done. I think it is overpriced since one has to go to a lot of work to get it fitted properly together.
Great Item, Prompt shipment
from Silver Spring, MD
Item worked out wonderfully for irregularly sized painting
Low quality workmanship
By Doctor Art
from Detroit, MI
Ordered a number of Nielson Bainbridge frames in black and found that the black paint was chipped off in many spots and when assembling them even more paint would chip off of their edges. I had to match acrylic paint to the black used on the frames and touch up every one. Another problem was in the cutting on some of the frame's corners. A few did not line up properly causing gaps between the 45 degree angles which also had to be filled with wood filler and painted over.
Merchant response: We apologize for the issues you had with the finish on these frame sections. One of our Customer Care Agents will be reaching out to see what we can do to help.
Looks great but handle carefully.
By Ruby's Mom
This frame looked great when put together. It is made from a very soft wood, so it can be easily damaged. I bought it for a short-term exhibition, would buy something sturdier for long-term display. I'd buy it again for the same purpose. BTW, I couldn't find the wedges for one set of the sides. I needed them in a hurry for an upcoming due date. Called Customer Service and they rushed me some more wedges. Dick Blick has excellent Customer Service!
one less straight
from Wichita Falls, TX
I have bought these frames previously. They are easy to assemble and look and feel very nice. However, both times there was on side of one frame in a batch of eight or ten that was slightly off so the assembled frame does not lie perfectly flat. I think that one piece must have warped a bit. Once you have glued it, you can't easily take it apart to take out the bad piece.
product was fine

The product was very good
Wooden modular frames - Convenient but flawed
from Boston area
I purchased these modular wooden frames because they appeared to provide an economical choice for an upcoming art show. The fames are simple and easy to assemble. However, they are made of wood that chips easily, so one corner of the black frame was blemished and some wood chipped off the dovetail slot that holds the frame together. Also, unlike the metal frames which are slightly less expensive, these do not have hanging hooks or wedges to hold the backing in. This was not a big inconvenience, but the metal frames have built-in holders for the wire and springs to clamp the backing tightly in place. Since both products are available from Nielsen Bainbridge it seems they should have similar features.
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback. If you feel that these frame sections aren't working out for you, please call our Customer Care Center at 1-800-723-2787. We'll be happy to assist you!
