SE1 Picture Frames have a large range of picture frames and finishes available. We specialise in hand finished wooden frames. The most common of which are ash, steamed beach, maple, oak and walnut. All these types of wood have different characteristics and they all lend themselves to different finishing methods.




Ash. A very hard wood with open grain that remains clearly visible once either hand stained or sprayed.


Steamed-Beach. Close grained, uniform colour and texture.  Wide range of stains and sands to a polish.


Maple. Close grained, hard and strong wood with a uniform grain. Looks good waxed or with a light stain.


Oak. Dense, strong wood. Attractive grain markings. Used extensively in the British furniture    industry.


American-Walnut. Fine grain and texture. Colour can vary in each length from dark brown to pink.
