.Bob Roberts of Larson Juhl talked to club members about the process involved in the mass production of elegant and museum quality picture frame material.  Some of the embossed frames begin with a slurry of sawdust and glue placed upon a good substrate and then pressed with a design.  If you put together your own frames, be sure to use acid-free matting and shellac the inside of the frame.  Mr. Roberts showed a sample of a frame that used museum glass to reflect virtually no light.
