I purchased some post cards while back in New Orleans that mimic the old advertising labels from years past. I had some old reclaimed swamp oak that I got from a hardwood supplier that they used as stickers to sit there lumber on, so I used it to frame these. They are mortise and tennon construction and added ebonized black walnut pillowed pegs.. The pictures aren’t the greatest….. Thanks for looking…

Very nice. I like the use of the Greene & Greene pillowed inserts. Great Arts and Crafts feel. I like the post cart too. This is a great inspiration. I’ll need to make a 45 set miter sled and get framing.
Cheers

Very pretty frames. Like the ebonized walnut plugs, nice touch. How large are the frames?
