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.

Very helpful and informative clerk
from Queens, NY
Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Ayous Wood Frame Kits:
I like to shop Blick even though it's so far from my home, because the clerks are so knowledgeable and helpful. A clerk named Stephanie took extensive time with me to review all my framing options and helped me select the Ayous frames. She even explained how to assemble them and fix the canvas into the frame. I am very satisfied with the appearance of the frames, and I will certainly buy them again at Blick.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great service by Blick
Not worth the money
I purchased 6 sets, for 3 frames as a gift for my Mom's birthday, to frame 3 pieces of artwork. Initially, I was pleased with the look and quality, but quickly noticed a scratch on one piece and later found that 2 or 3 chips had occurred while I was working at putting them together. The finish on these is very brittle - I handled them with kid gloves, placing them on a large folded towel and being gentle as I tapped the connectors home, in the corners. All my care notwithstanding, two chips occurred at the corners, where the mitres meet and one appeared on a front edge. I use the passive voice because I was very careful and cannot tell where they came from. The other problem was that the corners did not mate up very well - on one of them it is unacceptably off and on one other it is slight. One was a good mate, though it got a chip off of the corner when the connector was tapped home, from the pressure of the joint.. All of them require touching up the mitres with black ink, as they are not tight and the outer corners, as well, all show the light colored wood to some degree. That I could live with, nothing is perfect ! But the extreme gap and crookedness on the one frame, I cannot. And you have to glue the joint and dog down the connecting pieces before you can tell they will be wrong - and then there is no way to pull out the piece and rearrange them to see if another angle would work better. On the whole, for about 100.00 dollars, I got 2 okay frames and one unusable frame. I am not happy about it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A real winner
from Cambridge, MA
I am very fond of the Nielsen Bainbridge Ayous wood frame kits. They are accurately made and easily assembled. They are a great way to acquire museum quality frames at bargain prices.

I use these frames for canvases and panels. It's good simple frame, but the wood quality is not top notch. It's good for finishing touches.
Always a Winner
from Meridian, ID
We've used the Neilsen Bainbridge Ayous Wood Frames many times over many years. The price is right, but what we most appreciate is the excellent joinery work -- when assembled, you can't even feel the "seam" between the pieces. Top-notch product considering it's not custom work. Love this product.
I would not purchase this product again.
The corners did not come together well at all and I followed the directions exactly. The frame was warped and the corners did not fit together evenly. I had to send the frame back. I was very disappointed and will go back to using metal frames.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these frame kits didn't work as they should have, and of course we were happy to help you with a return. If we can be of further assistance, just let us know!
Simple, Elegant, Easy
from Binghamton, NY
These frames are simple and elegant, and very easy to assemble -- and the price is certainly right for such a rich look! I've begun using them for all of my work, and my gallery colleagues all ask who my framer is. When I tell them I use sectional frames, they're really surprised.

All orders I have received of this product have been excellent: solid wood, consistent finish, a good selection of sizes, and easy to assemble. I add glass and a matted picture and I have a professional looking presentation.
Great when not defective
from Healdsburg, CA
Two of the last four sets I ordered were defective. One set had the wrong corner widgits and one was cut incorrectly and looked like a mobius strip when assembled. Blick was excellent about sending replacements. I doubt if I'll order them again because it takes so long to receive them and then to receive a replacement.
