My mom made this small decorative quilt that she wanted me to frame. I made the frame from some old oak I had laying around. The corners are half lap joints that extend out of the corners only 3/16 inch. I made the inlay by cutting thin slices off an acylic pen blank. I was inspired by this fellow LJ’s project: Click for details

I sanded the front and sides to a baby smooth 800 grit and finished it with 4 (wipe on/wipe off) applications of clear Deft danish oil.

The inlay looks good with the quilt and I like the corners.
