These frames were made for my oldest daughter for post cards that they got on their vacation down the Oregon Coast. I have framed four others for her which she has hanging in her home. All of these are made from 3/4” x 2” stock and are 13” wide by 15’ high, mortise and tennon construction. The first one is constructed of Mahogany with 1/8” maple inlay, the second is of Makore with 1/8” white oak inlay, the third is of Red Oak with 1/8” walnut inlay and the fourth one is of flat sawn White Oak with 1/8” Makore inlay. They came to visit us and I was able to give them to her and my son in-law so they could take them back home with them…

WOW! Nicely done Max. They really enhance the post cards. I think the third one is my favorite.

Max it is always great to see your work!
Your are such a fine craftsman! Great style and look to each one of them.
I always like it when the frame complements the object and doesn’t take away from it.
Great color combinations on all of them!

Never even heard the idea of framing quality postcards.

What a wonderful idea.

They will treasure them.

Really like the framing and big matting to focus the eye on the card.

Excellence, as usual
