The last two years I have attended our church summer camp, and came home with a picture from it that I have been wanting to frame. Finally I have gotten the frames built and hung. They are the first frames that I have built, and took longer to built than they could have, but they were a good challenge.

Nice job. What kind of wood? Any chance of better focused pictures?

I recently got into frame making. Made 3 prototypes before I was satisfied. First one took 2 weeks. 2nd one 1 week, 3rd one 2 days. If you are going to do more you might want to try making this jig. Plus it lets you make the frame based on the size of the picture and insert regardless of the width of the frame rails. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6fUXRMJ0DI

Thanks for the comment. I joined the corners using Titebond II and a nail gun.
