Finally got around to re-framing a print we’ve had in our dinning room for many many years. I wanted to design a frame that would blend with the print and give me something else to do other then re-finishing cabinets in the house.
I had some true 4/4 curly cherry in my stack that would work with the cherry in the dining room. The rails were milled to 7/8’s and the stiles to 3/4. This gives a nice visual effect when joined. Used through tenon joinery with iron wood as the pegs. Tapered the stiles and flared out the ends of the top rail to mimic some of the angles within the print. Applied several coats of watco natural oil and finished with hand rubbings of waterlox varnish. Overall dimensions are 50 by 20.
The last photo is how things looked in ‘93. Wine cabinet is now a light display case, the tile is now wood.
thanks for viewing
