Carver and artist Monkeyman has been creating detailed, customized wood-carved frames for artwork for a few years now, and his work is truly beautiful. Each frame he creates is uniquely suited to the piece of art it will hold. These hand-crafted works take time, and Monkeyman is looking at something new — doing a larger production of standard-sized frames, designed to perfectly hold vintage album covers. Album cover frames are available out there, but they tend to be pretty basic — but Monkeyman’s ornate frames would work wonderfully in any home tiki setup, and will likely be very affordable. Based on the great interest this has generated, it looks like now is the time to get on Monkeyman’s list for frames.
