Here is a simple picture frame I made for a painting by my uncle. It was the first time I used my new router on a project, and made me realize that hand-routing really sucks. The slightest tilt up or down really gouges the wood (especially with my 1/2” cove bit), and the entire router wants to tilt off the edge. Time for a router table, I guess. The hard maple board I used for the frame had quite a bit of twist in it, which carried through to the final product. Despite all this, I think it looks pretty nice on my wall. The finish is several coats of a tung oil / poly blend wiped on with cheesecloth.
