This frame was inspired by Dan and the frame that he made for one of his tiles. I made this frame from Quarter Sawn White Oak and Walnut. The frame is glued and doweled at the corners except for the last pieces which are fastened with glue and pocket screws. I did not want dowels to show on the end pieces. I finished the frame with American Walnut Stain and Lacquer. The back is made from 1/4” Baltic Birch with acid free paper between it and the certificate for protection. The first picture shows the frame in its finished state with the Certificate matted and installed. I made the back removable so that the Certificate could be replaced with a new one when needed.
The wood thickness increases by 1/16” for each piece from the inside to outside except for the last piece of oak which increases 1/8”. All four edges are chamfered at a 45 degrees on each piece that makes up the frame.
This is a birthday gift for my wife, she knows she is getting a frame because I had to get the certificate from her she just doesn’t know how it looks as yet.
