There's a Doctor in the house and she needed a frame.

My wife recently became Doctor Cindy. She has been an audiologist for 16 years, but went back to school to become a Doctor of Audiology. Her very large diploma showed up and needed a nice, large frame. I made this frame of walnut with 1/4” strips of maple inlaid. It’s just finished with some BLO. I think it’ll stand out nicely on the wall of her office.

Congratulations to your wife. Awesome accomplishment. You made a great frame to show it off. I love the inlaid maple. It contrasts beautifully with the walnut.

Bill, it looks even better with the diploma in it. With the woodwork you do, you really should have a certificate for ‘Doctor of Wood’, as bambi said.

Thanks Bob and Bruce. I thought the same thing. The gold lettering on the diploma really works with the maple.
