I was commissioned to build 2 picture frames for a lady for her anniversary present to her husband. She found pictures on the net and text to me and said that she wanted something similar but it was in my hands. These are what I came up with and she loved them. No finish, just random boards stained and left natural. The little tabs on the edge holding the glass are made of Walnut.

I like these, I have to try building one.. My dad has been talking to me about building a frame out of barn wood for his oil painting.

Thanks Shawn and Jim, but I got the idea from another site and just put my spin on it. I have an order for another frame and 2 shadow boxes from doing these.

These frames are way cool! I especially like the stacked one. Of course, I gotta make some of these with my own spin. Thanks for sharing! :)

Is anything holding the glass on the bottom or is it just the tabs on the side?

Thanks Ted, make sure you post up your version when you get em done.

Jacob, it’s just the pressure of the tabs at an angle holding the glass.
