Rustic wood frame - Has anyone seen something similar to this rugged look in a frame? I'd love to frame my photography of the mountains in this style.

The live edge piece of myrtle wood is unique, There is nothing else like it. Another piece of myrtle wood would be very different. A wood worker that specializes in custom pieces such as this might be able to some wood for you. It was hand selected by my client, using my skillful expertise for the right look for their home.

It is burled BIG LEAF MAPLE. A lumber company that specializes in reclaimed wood may have slabs to sell. each peice is unique. Thank you it is quite beautiful.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Instead of reclaiming milled wood, how about taking a chunk right out of a tree and laying it on its side as a rustic mantle. This live-edge look is both bold and a calm, natural choice of materials.
