Picture or mirror frame- 18” w x 28” H x 1 3/4” D
This frame was carved from glued cypress boards 2” thick, cut out with my trusty jig saw, shaped with my electric reciprocating chisel and countless thousands of wood chips later this lovely frame appeared out of a block of wood. I routed a groove on the back of the center oval to mount a glass for a picture or a mirror. I had to be extremely careful not to allow the wrong piece to go over when it should have gone under. I enjoyed making this piece. This piece was the last project I carved before I got my lathe and have not been carving since. I will eventually get back to it but I have no idea when that will be.
