Oh, my. This is such a terrible idea. To Answer Kate, adding acid free paper will not solve the problem. The acid in the wood will bleed through, you would still need a full rag mat beneath the wood, that shows at least 1/4 inch in the window opening to protect the art. I was a professional framer, and art gallery owner/manager for 20 years. When we use wooden fillets on the inside of a frame, we always use another layer of matting below to protect the artwork. But fillets are very small strips of wood. The mat in this article is quite a bit more wood. I just wouldn't go near this one. There will be damage. Period.
