I just finished up a pair of ambrosia maple picture frames. The first one is now in place and holds a piece of art that my better half picked out almost a year ago and has been waiting patiently for me to build a frame for.
I used an ambrosia maple board that I bought over 5 years ago when my local Woodcraft had a blowout sale and then subsequently moved across the country a few times in corporate relocations. I had no idea what I was going to do with the board for a long time but I think it’s just funky enough to go with the art. I decided to use contrasting Walnut splines to reinforce the miter joints.
I carefully selected the grain and ghosting I wanted for the primary frame and then realized I had exactly enough left to make a duplicate. I figured what the heck. The picture of the frame on the table is a second frame that can be used for something similar at a later date. Yay! I finally got another one-off board off the lumber rack.
The woodcut art is by an artist form my local area named Kent Ambler.
