I have finally finished cutting the frame profiles. I decided to make a bunch of small frames, rather than just one. I really like framing, but boy am I dreading the mitering and glue up! But before getting into the mitering (next blog entry), I wanted to show off some of the profiles. The first two pictures are of the frame I took from the plans on the American Woodworker website. I really enjoyed doing that one. I already tried once on a cove frame I cut, a...

I making some picture frames for the family this holiday season. The design draws heavily from Darrell Peart’s Seattle Frame. I did a quick mock up in CAD to play with the proportions. If anyone’s interested, I could upload some dimensioned drawings. After several prototypes to get the joinery right, it was time top cut some mahogany. I got a piece with nice straight grain: Pieces laid out: Stock all milled with square holes made next to the prototype: ...
Simple picture frame DIYA birthday gift for my best and most loyal friend during 20 years now My wonderful old friend Michael, had a birthday, and I was planning to buy him a meditation, self insight or perhaps; man in the in the midway crisis book. Yes we are both around the tricky 40. I was looking out the window, trying to come up with a good idea. But my wonderful Caroline said to me on Skype ‘why don’t you give him something personal’, and I agreed right away. ...
Yesterday was such a beautiful day, wasn’t too cold, and the sky was blue (today is cloudy and rainy). I was fortunate enough to be able to use the day for some woodworking. I am at the point where I usually run into trouble. I have a tendency to want to work on the joinery and the problem is that I usually do that before I have all the parts ready leaving me with some parts that go together, but still require work to get the rest of it as well. This time around I decided to get all ...

Yesterday turned out to be a pretty productive day. Among other things, I finished cutting my matching self-framing picture frame, which will be the companion piece to the dresser tray I designed last week. In designing this pattern, I was fighting with whether I should or should not do additional scroll work in the center of the tray. To me it seemed that it was interesting enough on its own. I wanted the scroll work border to be the highlight of the piece, along with the beautiful chara...

How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...
I recently returned from seven awesome (and tiring) days of teaching at the William Ng School of Fine Woodworking. The first five days were dedicated to the Modern Hall Table, and the weekend class was focused on the frame. And believe it or not, the frame was the more challenging project to complete in the given time-frame. But I am glad to say that everyone was able to go home with some semblance of a finished project. I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures I took durin...
