If you are considering a custom made picture frames there are many things to think about, for instance there are two types of wood categories, hard wood and soft wood. Certain woods are better for building furniture and frames with than others.
The name hard wood and soft wood does not necessarily mean or indicate that the wood is harder or softer than each other, it simply means how dense the wood is. Soft wood isn’t as dense as hard wood but can still be equally as strong when you are building or sculpting from it.
