SO THE WIFE GOES TO THE ART FAIR AND COMES BACK AND SAYS, “I NEED A FRAME FOR THIS.” SO HERE YOU GO. A BUDDY OF MINE GAVE ME THIS GREAT PIECE OF WALNUT THAT HE CUT OFF HIS FARM. THEN I USED SOME LEFT OVER QRT. SAWN WHITE OAK. FINISHED WITH GUESS WHAT. WIPE ON POLY.

I like that frame, sarge. It looks like it belongs over that mantle.

Sarge,
i really like how you did the double 3-D effect with the walnut, that really looks great. I’ve never used wipe-on poly, is it easy to use and hard to mess up with? I ask because I’m not so talented when it comes to finishing my projects, so I look for easy finishes. But that frame is definitely an eye popper!
thanks for posting it.

I’ve made some picture frames, but I never thought of that type of construction. Consider it stolen. Looks great!

Isaac, wipe-on poly is tops in my book for giving good results with minimal chance of screwing up.

That is a gorgeous frame! I never thought of that type of construction for a frame. Is that a common way of doing it or did you design it? Also, is there anything on the back of those frame sides or are they three sided like the first picture?

Great looking picture frame Sarge. I’ve always liked Oak & Walnut used together.
