You know how it is when you have a special photo of family or friends and you want to have an equally special frame for it. We as woodworkers have a tremendous advantage because we can create the picture frame to match the occasion. Also, we can select the woods that we want to set the mood for the picture as well as create the style that we want for the frame. On top of that we can even embellish our woodworking project with wood inlay if we choose. It just takes a little thought, desire, and patience. Whether you are an Apprentice or a Journeyman, the end result is within the reach of all of us.
This woodworking video offers a tutorial on how shop-made bandings of wood inlay are installed into the face of a mahogany picture frame. The bandings are of maple, walnut, and cherry.
