I had some leftover Dark Walnut from building my daughter her hope chest and thought I would make a nice picture frame to house her Senior photo. Small project but had fun with it. Finished with Seal A Cell and Arm R Seal.

Picture frame? there is a picture frame there somewhere?

An exceptionally well positioned photo and worthy of your frame.

Now may we have a little more on the production process,
Original materials, tools used process involved.

Very good work!

Loved the Bar stand too!

Robscastle thank you for your input…yeah Im a bit new to this forum and still in the learning curve for proper posting. This was a fairly straightforward project with a few mitered cuts, a pass through the router with a decent Amana router bit and attached together with dominoes.

This did provide some learning regarding setting proper depth of the domino when I cut the first slot and it broke into the routing I just did. So it was back to square one to re-do one of the sides. Bummer. See photo of the mistake.
