About Crone’s Custom Woodworking | Picture Frames
Crone’s Custom Woodworking is located in Southwest Missouri, and has been in business since 1985.
Founder Tom Crone started the company by building consoles and custom wood limousine accessories for local and national builders. Over the past 20 years Tom has built over 2,000 consoles, one at a time, and mostly one-of-a-kind.
In the last few years, the business has developed into a father and son team, creating Custom Picture Frames, and specializing in Round and Oval Picture Frames. All frames are made to order per our customer’s specifications. We’re not artists, but are creative. Most of our best products have been inspired by a client’s request.
Our higher end frames are mostly made of oak, poplar, or walnut. We also offer other species of wood such as cherry.
We offer simple yet elegant frame profile designs along with floating frames for canvases. We also offer canvas stretchers in round, oval, and odd shaped designs.
In response to requests for a more economical frame, we introduced a new style of picture frame using natural fiber (MDF). This material offers a very uniform flat surface that is perfect for paint.
Thomas Crone (father) has been a woodworker most of his adult life. Mike Crone (son) has helped Tom in the woodshop since he was 15, and has become highly skilled at working with various plastics, as well as wood.
Our innovations with several types of Round Picture Frames, Oval Picture Frames and Special Order Picture Frames sets us apart from everyone else in this business. We continue to come up with new innovations and designs, and hand build every frame with the care and commitment of Old World woodworkers. We strive to provide you with heirloom quality frames you’ll be proud to own all your life.
