I got the inspiration for the frame after watching Marc Spagnuolo (AKA the WoodWhisperer http://thewoodwhisperer.com) create his Greene & Greene Mirror Frame. Most of my project consist of squared edges, cabinets, boxes, etc. I will be posting those at a later date. This project is more difficult than it looks. I provided several challenges and techniques that I had never done before, with the first on being how do I modify the design to fit my needs. If you would like anymore detailed info just let me know, and I will answer as best as I can.
This not stained. There are 2 coats of Watco natural Danish oil, and then several coats of 50-50 mineral spirits and polyurathane sanded with320 grit between coats. The last coat is sanded with 600 grit with watch oil being used as a lubricant. Last is a wax finish.
