Too many tiles and not enough time >grin<

Used up some more quartersawn oak shorts making these shadowboxes for my tile work. Figured I get them hung on the wall and in the future make larger frames that these narrow frames will drop into.

Frames are narrow at 1/2 inch, but made with nicely figure tiger oak.

mission finish is dark oak dye, minwax mahogany , seedlac and minwax black color wax.

all of my tiles start as mahogany woodcarvings. See my project gallery to see examples of the carving work and many, many, many other framed tiles.

what is really cool about the photobucket gadget is it is fully editable … able to add or subtract , resize, reorder … whatever … all at photobucket. The editing fixes or I’m currently adding this slide to all my ebay listings.

Thanks everyone ! .... FEELS GOOD….. THANK YOU
