The picture frames are of African mahogany with walnut splines accenting the mitre joints. The bandings of wood inlay are comprised of maple, walnut, and cherry. You’ll find the video tutorials of the banding and inlay process can be viewed by clicking the links.

One question….did you make the frames with the recess to accept the inlays, or do you buy the frames with the recess already in them? I watch the tutorial, but it does not answer that question.

If you bought the frames, where did you get them?

OK…that was two questions!

-- If you think you can, or think you can't...your right!

Bww…Much appreciated!

Eric…Thanks!

HuntleyBill…Excellent point. Thanks for bringing it up. Everything was made in the shop from scratch.

1. the lumber was milled
2. the mouldings for the picture frames were created at the router table.
3. The channel where the inlay was fit & glued was made at the tablesaw using a dado blade set at 7/16”. Also, there is a 1/4” x 1/4” rabbet that will accept the photograph and backing board. (this too was made on the tablesaw using a 1/4” dado blade.
........Stay tuned as I have plans to reveal in depth the process of creating picture frames in the shop.
.................Thanks for asking
