My daughter asked me to make some frames for her. She had a drawing she made at a BYOB art class. This is one of those functions where the more wine you drink the better your talent. She also had several diplomas etc that needed framed. I ran them thru the router table to put a contour on them. The first frame is Bubinga the rest are fiddleback maple. The Bubinga is finished with clear shellac. The maple with 1 coat of amber shellac and another of clear. The miters are straight from the table saw. I was really happy with the fit.

Great set of frames, Bruce! The ones with mats really set off their images/documents.
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice work especially for a daughter who deserves it I’m sure. This reminds me I must get a band clamp
