Did this on a Saturday afternoon with my Stepson. He is 15. He picked out a puzzle while we were shopping. It had to do with family. After we put it together (whole family). My wife and I thought it would be cool to hang it up. I glued the puzzle together and set out to make a frame for it. I have a old wooden French door hanging in the room that is getting Black and white pictures of our family placed in each opening. I had some scrap wood floating around in the garage I picked up from a trash pile. It was old fencing. I was going to make some rustic stuff with it. I used a couple of worn out 2×3 white wood fence rails. I ripped them down using one that had cool knots and a finish on them. I had previously pressure washed them and knocked a lot of the silver loose wood off them. The effect was pretty cool. So, I set up the dado blade and milled a rabbit for the glass and then cut the corners. We glued the frame up and did put the glass and puzzle in. Just left the finish as is. I had thought about clear coat or oil, but thought it looked cool as is. I inherited the saw and dado stack from my father as well as the Black and Decker table in the back ground. I was about 8 or 9 when my Mother, Brother, and I bought him that for Fathers day or Christmas. I remember going shopping for it. The cool thing about this project was that everyone in the family had a hand in it. Large or small part.
