This is a happy business this business of mine. I've come in contact with some amazing works and great people this week. Finishing up on a work by Doug Haynes.

Staining, buffing and finishing are next for this Hummer of a frame. Precise and well-executed walnut splines on these mitred corners will ghost under a veil of custom dark-stain, hand buffed to a low lustre.

Walnut tone-on-tone tendon lam-up in the Studio today. These biscuits inserted into each corner of our over-sized floater-frames stabilizes and secures the joints/mitres all the way up and down its spine ensuring a clean and strong gorilla hold.
These frames are deep and narrow ( 3/8") & at the same time undergo allot of stress throughout the framing process, so the last thing anyone needs is a mitre to pop💥nearing the completion of the project, or later-on down the road after our installation.
No-one needs that, which is why we take the time to do what's right.
Sanding next.

Now up and standing | rolled since '89, this is the first time anyone has ever seen this work by one of Canada's most successful modernist painters, Douglas Haynes in its entirety - standing - all stretched, square, flat, stable and so beautiful. Unless of course you might have been privileged to have seen it rolled out on a floor with the artist's paper-borders stapled to the margins of the canvas signalling compositional alignment for its ultimate placement.
A Studio appointment with the client this week has been firmed-up to re-evaluate frame options with finishing, staining and proportions.
This 're-fresher' dialogue gains perspective and clarity complimented with discussion and options evolving into a strong + restrained design thrusting this gorgeous work prominently on any wall it finds itself sitting - in a week, or in thirty years.

Saturday's are for personal projects; a lovely and unexpected surprise in the elasticized bulk of held travel-mail earlier this week; an original #gofundme reward for #soothsayerfilm sponsorship commitment coming through. An eloquent and soft spirited work by #yegartist #darahumniski who works occasionally for our troupe here at AAI. Congrats and thanks for this beauty Dara . All the best for the film project. Looking forward to seeing the finished product - film and finished frame. Best, GRJ

We handcraft the finest picture frame moulding. We do our own small-batch milling for different works based on the client's specifications.
We're working this morning on a 2-part walnut float-frame for a large beautiful work on canvas. Frames are just setting up to dry. We'll be hand-finishing next as they're all lined up to go.

Basking in a Malin glow this Richard Tosczak sculpture takes top spot on our delivered walnut plinth today for a great new client.
20 years of experience we continue to increase our quality and expertise. Our plinths are made with mitred corners with internal biscuits and industrial glue so that no seams are visible and... well, darn strong. Strong enough to hold the obvious 🐘💪🏻🐘 and did we mention handsome. ?#strongandhandsome #aai #RichardTosczak #yegwalnut #plinth #plinthboy #recon #walnut #stained #finishing #woodworking #aai #LynnMalin #ScottGallery #client #bespoke #commission #mitredcorners #yegframes #sculpturebase #artgallery #strong #stabilizer #elephant #bronze #cast

At AAI we have a great team of artisans, craftsmen and finishers who work together to achieve outstanding work. Frasier is one of our spray finishers and is completing our assigned 'draw downs' - various stain and colour samples - for our client to select from ( when dry ). Once the finished veneer sample have been approved by our client; Frasier is able to work magic.
Artists make the best employees.😊 The best.
