A couple years ago I finished a commission for a customer in Park City, Utah. They ordered a pair of frames to display their collection of Grueby tiles. As in most of my commission work, I make multiples of the item and pick the best of the lot for the customer, keeping the extra for myself etc.

Frame is quartersawn white oak,mortice and tenon pegged construction w/ bookmatched sides, golden oak dye, danish oil, armorseal, garnett shellac and minwax antique mahogany paste wax.

The lattice work on this piece is 3/8×3/4 strips of qswo, half-lap joinery and 1/8 pegged.

Tiles are my collection of 4 inch Grueby tiles. Excellent curdled glaze with nice color
