The edge of this frame has a rough finish, so looks really rustic. The matt unfinished wood has a strong grain which has a distressed finish and is quite deep at just over hal an inch deep. This means that the photographs are set back from the edge and then the internal struts sit on top of them giving a sort of three D effect. The back of the frame is a single board, which when removed shows a single pain of glass at the front which protects the images inside. The top three apertures are in portrait and then the two lower ones in landscape mode. This makes the frame feel really well balanced and means it isn't restricting the style of photo displayed. The board is held in place by eight folding clips and has a tooth hanging hook, so that the frame can be hung as straight as possible without having to spend ages working out where the middle is.
