Framed stoneware tiles from Ravenstone tile works in Seattle. Artist Laura Reutter, founder of Ravenstone. Frames made a few weeks ago. Built in a batch w/ of 7 other frames. Not much labor in the piece due to the batch run.
Quartersawn white oak frame is simple mortise and tenon construction. The 4 pieces are different thicknesses and offset to create a shadow line in the design. It is 10×10 inches.
I call this my pagoda style frame. finish is aniline alchohol dye with oil stain. shellac top coat, thick brown paste wax rubbed in with beartex.
Sold the first 3 on ebay.
Now trying to sell a pair on ebay.

A little different design then the previous post.

If anyone is wondering … the chamfers on ends of the pediment are 24 grit ground on my 6×80

A wonderful design and execution. Your frames are always as much art and as exquisite as the tiles they surround.

You really compliment the tiles with your style. Your wood is not sanded smooth, interesting. I like it. Noticed that before just never said anything. Works well for you. Love the dark oak. Thanks…........
