ABOUT THE FRAME SHACK
The Frame Shack opened in 1976 originally as the Workbench of Wakefield. The Workbench was a do-it-yourself wood working shop where amateur woodworkers could use a wide array of professional power equipment for an hourly fee. Our evolution from woodworking to custom picture framing began when customers wanted to create frames with the woodworking equipment.
The name was changed to the Frame Shack and for the next few years we offered both custom and do-it-yourself framing. The do-it-yourself aspect of the business eventually declined while the custom framing accelerated. Still to this day, the shop retains its original wood working equipment, allowing us to create projects that other frame shops can't.
It is our woodworking heritage that has provided the skills and knowledge necessary for the Frame Shack to produce a wide variety of framing projects. Beyond the traditional mitering and joining tools, the shop is backed by an array of highly sophisticated woodworking equipment…and the abilities for effective use allowing the shop to take framing to bold, new levels.
