I generally do not like to post pictures from my day job but i really liked this frame and the joint in particular. It was a fun build for me particularly working on the joint. I am not sure what this joint is called but the best way i can describe it is a mitered half lap open tenon? If any one knows what this type of joint is please let me know i would love to know what it is actually called. This frame was made out of oak the profile was cut by making a custom made steel knife and used in a shaping machine, the joints are not 100% accurate but that was done purposely. The frame was reproduced from an existing frame and had to match it completely with a few open areas. I do not have any photos of the finished frame because i very rarely have to apply finish at work. but it was stained or painted a black color and it was dinged up a little bit more to match the already existing frame.
