I needed a new frame for this charcoal drawing of a woodworker, so I got some cedar 1×2 from the big box, then I used some lapped miters for extra strength since it is a fairly large frame (18×24). The antiquing finish is a coat of black tea, then after it is dry, a coat of baking soda with water. It makes for a nice warm grey patina, and doesn’t obscure the wood grain.
