A very long time ago I asked my now deceased mother to write down her Cherry Slice recipe for me.
Her baking skills were renowned and I wanted to make sure this recipe wasn’t lost over time.
It laid in a drawer for a very long time and recently I came across it and was afraid of losing it, so I had it laminated in heavy archival stock and made a nice frame for it.
Naturally, I made the frame from Cherry, and put in a nice Purpleheart inlay.
The miter splines are Makassar Ebony.
Mounting it was tricky because it is an odd size.
I couldn’t find the proper turn-buttons to attach the back, so I used pieces of popsicle stick.
(My depression-era mom would have loved that.)
The frame was finished in Boiled Linseed Oil and Shellac. And a top coat of Wax.
The project came out nice and was fun to make.
I think my dear old mom would have approved.
Thank you for looking and have a great day.
