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.

Great way to mail-order frames

Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Ayous Wood Frame Kits:
Quality frame kits. Only problem is warping - some frame pairs come bent or twisted and make for a lot of work straightening them
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a professional artist, I've used these sectional frames many times. While they aren't in the same category as custom made frames; they are easy to assemble - comparable in price to other sectionals - and look really good.
Good for odd sizes
from Tiger, GA
I really don't know about the price value but if I had to custom a frame for the size I needed it would have been a lot more money. Based on that, - good deal! I am fussy about nicks and unpainted edges where the two pieces join (goes together super easy with a rubber mallet). I did have to paint some areas and sand some corners where they were off by a hair. It showed up in the black frame. If it was for home use, I wouldn't have bothered. The company almost has total quality management but off just enough to make me work to perfect the frame.
Bring back the dark brown color!!

I generally like these frames - reasonable cost and easy to put together. But, big disappointment, Nielson Bainbridge has discontinued the dark brown color. I find the black frames flatten out a lot of my artwork and the natural tone is usually just too light. The dark brown (espresso) or red brown was always perfect. Please bring that color back!! Please?
Good, standard sectional frames.
from Denver, CO
Very easy to assemble and are just solid, plain frames. Nothing fancy, but they are finished nicely, generally straight and the wood sectionals in particular have awesome depth for spacing or canvas framing. The only downside is the backside of the frame, which doesn't have much room for hardware such as large D-rings.
I've been buying these frame kits for about two years.

The last frame kit order had a missing part (a plastic brown peg that gets inserted when assembling the miter corners).

Ayous Wood Frame Kits
from Paducah, CA
I put this together quickly and easily so I could stick to the deadline. The frame looks really good on my 22x28" painting, but I don't recommend going larger; the frame's profile is sleek but small for larger works.
I would buy this product again

I purchased the natural finish. Very easy to assemble. Looks great.

Easy to assemble and nice clean polished look when finished.
Works but a little pricy, a few warped.
from Palo Alto, CA
These work nicely but are a little expensive. I purchased a number of these for some shows and open studios. I would recommend the natural over the black because they do not fit perfect and the imperfections are noticeable in the black. I have had a few that are warped particularly the, longer ones 20 - 24 inches, and it is nearly impossible to get the frame completely flat when one length is warped. I would just barely recommend for their ease of use and range of lengths.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that some of the frame sections you received from us were warped, and we're happy to help. Please give us a call at 1-800-723-2787, and our Customer Care Team will take good care of you!
