no previous part Part 1 of Project for Matt in PA series Part 2: Grueby tiles and quartersawn white oak frames »

Customer found my work on Lumberjocks and commissioned 3 pieces. This is the largest and the last of the three.
This one is almost done….
Finish is Limbert’s dark golden oak aniline dye, Minwax Red mahogany stain with several coats of seedlac shellac.
..
still needs a couple coats of dark brown Briwax … will soften the shine to a leather like satin.
Will take better photos when complete and post in projects someday.

Thanks Karson. Took a couple months to get all 3 done in my spare time.
Hope he likes them.

He tells me he wants a dozen pieces to decorate a Sears and Roebucks bungalow near Pittsburgh.

How much time is in one of these?

Are there dowels at the intersections?

Where did you get the idea?

Enough questions! Now some praise.

They look as if they are part of a southwest collection of art, well done.

thanks Buds

Oldnovice … it takes some time… lots of spare time.
For me it is a hobby so it doesn’t matter much.
Allot of the time is coming up with a design and getting it put down.
All of the joints are oak pegged. The lattice work is 1/4” wide with 1/8 oak pegs …
I try to batch frames together so I spread the time around.

Lee – I get ideas from other peoples work that inspire me to recreate it my way.
This one got a taste of Charles Rohlfs …
