Since finishing the interior painting my spouse has been on a re-decorating run. Last month I was commissioned by her to construct frames for two block prints that she’d ordered. She could have purchased the frames online but that would’ve broke the bank to be sure.
For the past 20 years I’ve had a small pile of walnut stock of leftovers from previous projects gathering dust. Seizing the opportunity, to do something other than refinishing, I gladly accepted the job borrowing liberally the frame design suggested on the web site where she bought the prints.
Both frames have differing thickness stiles and rails for effect. The smaller frame is joined using #10 biscuits whereas the larger frame is joined with mortise and tenon. Both frames have a rabbit cut and squared on the reverse half the thickness of either the rail or stile. The larger frame’s top rail has a slight tapering added.
Finished with Watco natural oil and Waterlux satin varnish.
So, now back to refinishing kitchen cabinet doors and the remainder of the dog days of summer.
Thanks for viewing.
