John Jones is a unique fine art picture framers with our very own bespoke wood mill based in Welwyn Garden City. Using state of the art technology, our team can run custom frame shapes and designs overnight at the mill, creating completely unique solutions for our clients.
Our design team sketch out new frame shapes and sizes and take their drawings to our wood mill manager, who produces an electronic CAD drawing. This image is then used to create a new cutting template for the John Jones moulding machine. After selecting the appropriate timber, our team can transform raw wood into a beautiful new frame shape ready for sanding. Our high-tech moulder holds over 650 frame profiles on file. This stored database makes the wood cutting process fast and accurate, minimising any waste or defects.
The mill is also equipped with a state of the art laser guided multi-Rip saw and a fully self-sufficient tool room, allowing us to produce our own moulding cutters in house to your requirements. Any waste we do accumulate in the form of dust is now extracted from the air into a huge container, which is then collected for recycling. The days of shovelling sawdust into skips on cold January mornings are long gone for our technicians!
From modern art frame design to decorative renaissance frame shapes, our team is able to produce any bespoke frame style and size. There are not many places in today’s world that you can have a completely bespoke and unique item designed. Luckily when it comes to frames, there is John Jones! If you have an unusual frame shape in mind to protect and present a piece from your collection, please don’t hesitate to contact our team who can design this for you.
