Able And Baker at the Emmys

We recently had the opportunity to contribute some things to the Emmys this year. Among our contributions was one of Jen Zahigian's photos in our exclusive ABLE & BAKER 13 Ply Maple Frame. Each celebrity, or whoever handles their stuff, received one in their gift bag. Hopefully they appreciate it, or at least give it to someone who does.

Each frame is

+ Made with FSC (Forestry Stewardship) certified ply
+ Hand Finished with an Organic Beeswax blend, revealing a naturally rich wood grain
+ Includes Framer's Grade Acrylic and felt bumpers
+ Handcrafted in our woodshop

We make the frame stock in our Ventura, California woodshop, but the actual frames are assembled by Jesus and Manor at Worldview Pictures, also in Ventura.

Our Wood-Ply frames are now available in our online shop
(This week enter Autumn30 at checkout to get 30% Off!)

Want to order a large quantity, or Need a Custom Size? Let us know.

(Thanks to Janeen at for inviting us to participate)

Did we mention PINE CONES? I mean Solar.

Hey there! Yeah you.
Did I hear you say you want the money-saving, environmentally friendly advantage of Solar Energy but don't want to make your beautiful Tuscany style roof look like a Coleco-vision?

Well friend, look no further! Discover Solar Pergola!
The great new way to accomplish all those things I just said!

(pictured above, 15' x 15' x 60' Pergola with Solar Panels)

We build Solar Pergola from scratch with only the finest ingredients.

We begin with a structural frame made from 100% Ground Contact Pressure Treated Douglas Fir. Then we cover each piece of lumber with heavy duty Maintenance Free UV Resistant Vinyl.

The whole thing gets bolted together with Heavy Duty Hot Dip Galvanized nuts, bolts & hardware. Finally, we cover your new pergola with Solar Panels, providing enough power to easily pay for itself.

As if that weren't enough, when you build your Pergola as a Solar Structure, you get to take advantage of the 30% Solar Tax Credit, and apply it to the cost of the Pergola as well! For more information, give us a call, or call our partners at Solar Universe!
