Here are two frames made for Paul A. Lanquist prints. My wife designed and built the first one for the Portland Woodworking show, and took third place. I copied the design and built a second frame so we could have a matching pair for the bedroom. The frames are made from quartersawn white oak with walnut inlays. The design echoes the “Wedge and Strap” backsplash detail on my bedroom furniture.

Willie, your bedroom ensemble is incredible. Just looking at the pic makes me feel like I stepped back a hundred years or so, how relaxing! The frames and prints are a great finishing touch.

P.S. I still think the night stands should have had a a backer board like all the other pieces. :D
