This is another frame that I built for our living room area. It sort of has a southwest style to it, but I wanted to do something a little different. I made some arrows out of copper rod, brass, and welding wire. I then mounted the arrows in some pockets that I routed out free hand using a ball nose bit. The ball nose bit sort of gives it a hand carved look, without having to actually hand carve it. I left the cut outs sort of rough looking to give it a more natural sort of look. I was real pleased with the way this turned out. I think it really adds some spice to the picture.
The picture measures about 22” x 28”, the frame is made of 3/4 thick oak, 3-1/2” wide. The top piece was made 6” wide to accommodate the “woop t doo” on top center. I used lap joints to join the pieces together. And glued it all up. Then finished it off with gloss polyurethane.
