Wife’s painting, my frame. Whitewashed poplar with satin poly. Exposed bridal joint corners with friction fit to canvas. Not really difficult, but it made her happy.

-- Red pencil, red marker, marking knife... doesn't mater, the wood will end up the same color.

That’s very unique and very nicely done. It really works well with your wife’s painting.

Realy beautiful frame-so unique. My daughter does some paintings also and I’m trying to find appropriate frames for them. Looks like this one will be just fine – I may stole some idea from that design/concept.

Steal away! We all get our ideas somewhere! I got this idea from a mix of Greene & Greene and Arts & Crafts styles I’ve seen. But my wife loves the beach and diving, so whitewash made more sense for her and the way she decorated the room (seashells, sand, beach painting, and antique white trim).

Yep. 1/4” straight bit and stop-blocks on the fence. A few tries with scrap before I found exact center. Then just pushed out the stop blocks and went a little closer with the fence until the outside two looked good on scrap.
