I had some scrap purple heart and a little bit of quarter sawn oak wood left over from some other projects. This is my first picture frame and it had turned out great (I think). The size is 13”x10”. And as you can see, I’ve already found the perfect picture for it.

Nice frame. The colors make it interesting. Are you sure you can’t find another picture? Anything? Left over wallpaper? Last year’s newspaper?

I looked for the newspaper, but the dog ate it.

Thanks for all the comments guys. I realize I should have got a model, but it was 10 at night. The corners of the purpleheart are mitered together.
