I made this picture frame for a close friend. It will have a hard board backing then wine corks glues in like on of my other projects posted.. It was made out of Maple and Purple Heart. I laminated the purple heart in then use Tung Oil to bring out the grain. I paid close attention to the grain orientation like taught on here to ensure boards went back together respectively. See I do listen Jim & Degoose… LOL… I made a miter jig for the table saw as well.
Thx for looking.

Well, it looks like the jig works perfectly. Really tight miters!!

Love that tiger maple, the grain really is impressive.

With a frame that size, it’s probably going to take more than one evening to collect the required number of corks ;^)

Ken, your work is great. the pic frame, the cutting boards, and I really like the tool box. I’m sure your favorite is the completed home project. Well done! Thanks for sharing.
