My brother does a bit of home brewing so for his birthday I designed some logos for his beer, then had them printed and made some frames for them!

Pretty simple construction, chamfers and rabbeting done on the router. I built a miter sled a la Woodworking for Mere Mortals ( to cut the miters and glued it up with a clamping jig based on this project:

I tried gel stain for the first time and I kinda liked it – it brought out the grain in this plain white wood that normally doesn’t pop with other stains I’ve used. Finished with four goats of General Finishes satin gel topcoat.

Neat idea, I am sure your brother will like them.
