    Dan - There is Foster Planing Mills in California. However, they do not custom join. You will be able to find raw wood mills, but custom joining will be harder to find. I hope your recovery goes smoothly. Al

    Are you looking for raw wood ,gesso, plain or carved frames. You have to be more specific

    Decor introduced a line of these last year. There aren't many profiles available yet, maybe 6 or so? But they will certainly chop and join them.
    Vermont Hardwoods can make anything you want as well.

    On a side note.....

    Wouldn't it be great if regular mouldings were available in unfinished form.
    Either raw wood or gessoed only.

    Well it would be great for me. :D

    After all, it has to go though an unfinished stage before it gets a finish applied.

    I do realise that due to production procedures it's not quite as simple as that but it would be good.

    I hardly ever buy finished moulding any more. If I do buy some it generally is stuff that gets stripped and refinished.

    I often peruse moulding cats and think "That would be nice if it came plain". Like the shape but not the finish.

    Not everybody's thing but be nice to have the option. :rolleyes:

    Is any frame could be purchased row or in gesso? I can finish it myself to save money.
