As usual, Dan, a very attactive frame and tiles. I really like the greene and greene style that you have used. The addition of the screws and what looks to be leather straps are nice.

Thanks MAX !

Leather straps are incomplete.
For now they have shoe polish iin about a 4in long area. Darked up the leather a bit to make it look oldish.

Dan, I first want to welcome you back, you have an Avitar that I recognize again :-)). Your tile and frame are beautiful, as with all of the projects that you post.

Yeah, who is that masked man? “Sunrise in the Enchanted Forrest”. You finally got one to hold together. Congratulations, Dan, on an outstanding piece. I’ve followed along on this one. It’s even more impressive than I expected.

Thanks eveyone !

As mentioned in my blogs I borrowed a design detail from a master woodworker. He came up with a distinctive woven wood technique on his door project
Thanks !

dennis : I’ve made a couple headboards, but long ago…. Way before I started making tiles. The first the bed we sleep in. Made it in Milwaukee from some air dried post oak bought from a local Indian Reservation. Paid something like 60 cents a board foot.
Made it to fit in out high ceiling Milwaukee bungalow on 43rd street. It was a mission canopy bed. You guessed it, too tall for our new house in Tennessee. Had to trim the legs down. Finally when we moved to Ohio it was too tall to make it up the stairs. Off came the canopy, Now it is 36 inches shorted with pyramid ends on the posts.

Really unique Dan, the frame is just awesome. Like the sculpture too. Great, super work, Oh yea, checked out all the photos and tried to find some of your stuff on ebay. Pics were really neat but I struck out on ebay.
