Here’s my completed Metallica frame for my son’s James Hetfield autograph. What a blast to make a “themed” picture frame! You can read a bit more about its construction here.

Sad but true…you’re the hero of the day! Am I evil for being jealous of your son’s autograph? If you were trying to make a project that would trump the other dads…this will kill ‘em all.

The idea of a themed picture frame has never occured to me. Thanks for the idea. You did a great job on that one. Your son will treasure that for the rest of his life I’m sure.

You are so creative Steve, I like watching your video productions. You have a lot fun with it that’s often very important as I usually quite on things that are not fun. I think it’s great that you do things with your son, I believe I remember you doing a video with him sometime back. Keep it up Steve it always makes my day.
