Corner Samples

We offer corner samples as examples of what a corner of a frame will look like once joined. The size will vary depending on which type of sample it is (see below for details). Any combination of profile, wood, and finish that we offer can be made as a corner sample.

Color Changes

If you choose to offer the natural Oil & Wax finish on Cherry and Mahogany, please note that your samples will get much darker over time. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this color-changing process and make sure your customers also understand that the frame they receive from new wood will most likely NOT match your corner sample.

In addition to our traditional Oil & Wax finish, we offer stained finishes that help achieve a similar look without the wait time. See the finishing page for details.


We have two types of corner samples, as well as chips:

Mitered Chop corner sample Mitered Chop
Our standard corner samples measure 7¾" on the outside and the ends are miter cut. The pieces are joined with glue − the corner is NOT representative of our Chop & Join option.
Finished Corner Frame corner sample Finished Corner Frame
Finished Corner Frame samples measure 10½" long and the ends are blunt cut. The corner is representative of the join on a Finished Corner Frame.
Chips are pieces of moulding that show finishes on woods. Chips are generally 4" - 6" long and have no particular cut. Chips can only be ordered in a wood and finish − profiles may not be requested.
