Wow, That is a nice idea that i’m not sure I have seen before! What finish was that you were using?

That was Minwax’s ‘Tung Oil Finish’ – a favorite of mine. Four coats.

I really like the frame and I also like the new format for the video. Very peppy and quick moving, nice job!

Thanks Brett! It’s actually easier to produce them that way so I guess it’s a win win. :)

I used similar joinery on a couple tables I made but never thought of using it for a picture frame. Nicely done!!

Your frame came out looking great. Can I ask how thick was your stock for this frame and how deep was the rabbet in the back?

Have your say...
