This is a picture frame that I made awhile back. Need a good home to house a picture of my three granddaughters – Maggie, Anna and Sarah. The frame is made of Maple with a Rosewood inlay. It is about 8” x 10”. The picture make it looks like there are some runs in it, but it actually has a pretty good finish on it.

I think it looks great Cajun. How could it not with those three princesses living inside of it!

Excellent job, Bill!

Picture frames were my first foray into woodworking. Using a cheap plastic miter box and backsaw, I caught hell trying to get good miter joints. :-) Maybe I should try a few more now that my equipment and skills are a little better.

Great work Bill. Looks like a good solid frame. The inlay really adds to the look. I make all my picture frames for my scrollsaw pictures. Ive never tried to insert a inlay into a frame. I think I will try it. Great job again, all your projects are very good Keep up the goodwork.

A good picture is the moment frozen in time. Goes with ’’Remember When” ? Great frame you made to encase them. Semper Fi!
