So this isn’t the most exciting project you’ll ever see, just a photo of my old shop dog, Cocoa. But I’m quite happy with it, and the more I see it, the more I like it.

Seeing as I’ve made a few ‘normal’ frames this year, I wanted to try something a little different. Also, I’ve got some display boxes planned soon and I want to have ‘pillowed’ finger joints on them, I thought this would be a good way to trial the technique. (Not sure if ‘pillowed’ is the right word? Basically I want finger joints that extend from the frame, which are shaped and sanded to have nice soft edges.)

I made it from some pine scraps and using my single blade box joint jig. There is a pane of plexiglass about 10mm in, and then another one on the back of the frame. I wanted to have clear space all around the photo, that’s the wall around the photo that you can see, not a backing board.

Nothing too involved, but it looks nice in my shop so I’m calling it a win. :-)
There’s a bit more about it on my website as well if you’re interested.
