Any picture framers out there?

Seeing as how I have received a number of great tips on cooking, my favorite hobby, I was wondering if anyone out there has a hobby of framing their own pictures, paintings, etc. I am looking to buy a nice book on the topic and I was looking for recommendations. I do not think I am quite at the point of actually building the frames, but more interested in doing my own matting. However, a book with substantial information on both would also be nice.

Thanks in advance!

I would check on HSN, QVC and Ebay. You can also research out about making the matting and also the frame. Hope this informations helps you.

One of my other serious hobbies is Woodworking. While it is not as specific as framing, I have made several frames. Some with matting, some without. I am not sure what specific questions you might have, but I might be able to help.
