Over the last twenty years we have framed all kinds of things at Elite Framing, rarely are we surprised when a new idea comes in. This time we were! We have a customer ask if we could frame a limb. You know, a limb from Live Oak tree. With Spanish Moss draped across it. Now we can say that, YES, we can frame a limb from a tree!

We lined the inside of the shadowbox with the same burlap matboard. This piece measures about 38″ wide by 11″ high! Nice! And all mats, glass and moulding are manufactured in the USA! Made in USA!
