The frame on my wife’s picture that she got from her Grandpa Youngbauer when she was a little girl was not in very good shape, so I wanted to preserve the picture and the old glass and give it a new home. The picture itself is 15×20 and dates back to the early 1900’s. It is made from Walnut and finished with a couple of coats of clear Shellac. The top rail is morticed and tenon and the bottom is sort of a “modified” lap joint. It was a fun weekend project! I hope like it!

Steve, that is a really nice frame and the craftsmanship is top notch. Is the top arched and bowed?

Very, Very nice, Steve. I wish I could master your technique for laying down a beautiful Shellac finish.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone

Art. The top has a flat back and a bowed front with a chamfered edge on the front side.
