how to Gallery Wrap and trim signs with old vintage wood

I’m always trying to create new & unique art using canvas & this is my latest creation/series. The canvas is actually modge P. ( glued) & stapled to a 3/4 inch thick wood board. To achieve a  realistic & vintage frame “look” i  pulled out my tools, air nailer, glue ,ruler, coffee cup (with a splash of cream & sugar) and  an armful of  various old wood trim i re-purposed and ……viola ! Instant Vintage custom Frame.

This   canvas for our art ,at this writing,   was  Printed   ( by our fav printer sub-El-Co Color Labs, Inc. USA.)   on a  UV printer in Fine Art Mode on   bright white 65 %poly / 35% cotton (Acid Free) material.

This video shows the process Zeke uses to mount the canvas to a substrate, 3/4 inch pine wood, and attach custom cut re purposed wood trim to give each piece a “rare & unique faux antique ” look.
