These are two frames that I made for my wife for Christmas this year. These will probably be displayed in her office at her work. They are constructed of quarter sawn red oak with mortise and tennon construction. The pegs are ebonized black walnut and have been pillowed to set proud by about 1/8”. These are the same style as some that I posted before except for the style of pegs that I used. The tiles are done by Ravenstone Tile in Washington State. The finish is a noble cherry oak with satin lacquer finish coat.

Max, these are really nice frames. I enjoy seeing arts and crafts style projects like this. They have just enough detail with the design and pegged tenons to give the frames visual interest without detracting from the frame itself. Nice finish too.

I am sure your wife will enjoy these.
