This is a picture frame and sign I made for my Sister in law. The wood is from her and my brother in law’s cabin which was torn down earlier this year and replaced. Getting the miters for the corners was quite a challenge considering the age and condition of the wood. Routering for the glass and backer board crated a new challenge. I also tried to get a flow around the frame using one board and matching. She plans to put a picture of the original cabin in the frame. The frame she asked me to make, the sign was a surprise. It was fun working with this old wood but looking where I cut the letters makes me wonder what kind of wood would be revealed if it was planed. It’s a beautiful golden brown. Thanks for looking!
