Made a Greene and Greene map frame out of African Mahogany and ebony pegs as a practice project for pegging a larger Greene and Greene piece. Finished with 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal.

Another great piece. Beautiful work! I wish all my practice projects turned out this well.

This is a beautiful frame and a wonderful eye catcher.

I like the frame. Did you also make the drafting table in the second photo?

Great looking G&G frame—especially for a “practice” project!

Wow-what an amazing looking frame. The rounded ends look great with the lifted section in the middle. The ebony pegs are a great detail.

Thanks for sharing.

The plugs really make this piece “pop”. Perfect for your map!
