I made a poster of my nephew Giovanni and sister Cathy last year so I decided to make a picture frame for it. Originally it was going to be made out of poplar but I cut the pieces too short so I added walnut on the ends. I used lap joints to connect the walnut to the poplar, and then I used pocket holes to connect the strips together.

Looks Great! Creative people always find a way to make it work. May not be what you started out to build but we always seem to figure a way to make it work!
