Precision Picture Framing is a home-based business owned and run by a husband and wife partnership (Peter and Christine) and has been operating since 2009 when it began as Darra Custom Framing.
Peter’s 50-year carpentry experience provides the precision of a craftsman now applied to picture framing. He loves to personally see each project through from design, to assembly, to finished product provided to customer. To enable this, he bought equipment from a framer who was closing his business, so he can do everything onsite from cutting the mat to using a guillotine to cut frames and assembling them using an underpinner. Peter cuts his own glass and even provides a hanging service to complete the process. His passion is providing custom framing at a reasonable cost.
Christine is a retired physiotherapist who has been working in aged care for many years. She helps Peter doing bookkeeping, and administrative work as well as giving a woman’s perspective about colours and frames!
Here’s how we got started in picture frames…
In 2008 a shoulder injury prevented Peter from doing heavy carpentry work. Normally a very active person, out of boredom he attended a craft and quilting show with his wife and daughter and saw a workshop on picture framing. That led to doing some training courses after which he began building the business with a view to making it a full-time occupation.
We have recently moved to a new house in the Brisbane suburb of Rothwell, necessitating the change of name to Precision Picture Framing (from Darra Custom Framing) and a closed-in garage has become our office and studio.
