After 4 “prototypes” this frame is the reason I wanted to learn how to make a quality frame. My son passed the BAR today so he gets to hang something in his office that his proud papa made. I figure that if I factor in the cost of college and law school it’s a $400K frame! :-)

That’s so awesome, Andy. I know you’re proud. The frame is nice too :)

Seriously though, the frame is awesome. Good job, both of you.

What a nice gift, it looks great. I wish I could get my miters that good. My wife says the cost of woodworking is a bottomless pit. I can let her know it is at least $400k. :)

Looks like a $400k piece of paper with an invaluable frame to me.

Congratulations on both counts, the frame and the graduate!

The frame looks great . . . and your son should be able to pay for it in a couple of 40-hour weeks!
