I sy you are better of from getting a template. It just looks old to me.

With javascript disabled, your site is unnavigable. Also, I'm not a big fan of frames, and I think you have a horizontal scrollbar at 800x600. Text resizing seems to work well in Firefox. There's too much red for my taste. That's about it.

Building off what croatiankid said, you need to revamp your navigation scheme. CSS buttons (ul list, li that stuff) would fit very nicely. If you wish to keep the javascript buttons, you may want to consider putting text links in the button of the page.

Now, I don't want t be offensive, or crititize your work, but the web site in itself is not generally asthetically pleasing. You may want to re create the graphics in a more crisp way. Use images which are specifically designed for certain functions.

Jepgs are really good for images with a variation of colors, while gifs are smaller and better for a smaller amount of colors.

For nice navigation check out suckerfish dropdowns (http://www.htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/dropdowns/).

These use CSS lists to create the dropdowns and can be extended to include image buttons for the rollover the way your site currently works.

For your gallery section why not use lightbox (http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/) to create a nice interface. Text can also be displayed with this method.

Check out my site - Thousand Sons (http://www.thousand-sons.co.uk) for both of the above methods.

Rather than having the main panel scrollable, why not remove some of the content to another section and have all the elements floated.

Happy to help you rebuild / redesign.

Edit: BTW your woodwork is really nice!
