A couple of hammered copper tiles that didn’t work for another project now framed in Mission Arts and Crafts quater-sawn white oak.
Pinned mortise and tenon joinery, Old English dark scratch cover for the stain, a coat of shellac, light sanding W/440 grit then a couple of coats of oil poly mix.

very nice Bud! Like your stain color. The dowels look great. Really absorbed the Old English well.

Max- I found them here http://www.coppersinksdirect.com/ccp0-catshow/tile-4x4.html

Thanks DaN, and thanks for the inspiration too, I made these after looking through your many frames. Using Old English was by chance, it was sitting out on my bench when it came time to finishing these and after trying it on a piece of scrap I thought it looked good, I will probably use it again as it went on so easy too.

You hit a home run, Timbo, gad zooks! Gotta show those to Sherie. She wants me to make some frames for some tiles (I think they were tiles) she bought a while back. That finish turned out great! Favorited this…...........

Working on a hum-drum fixture for the shop, quite a few hours this weekend. At least I am back in the groove in the shop. My vacation was a real recharge.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone. Your welcome for the link, the folks at copper sinks were nice to deal with and the tiles seem to be reasonably priced.

I like your frames. Not too show to allow the tiles to shine as well.

Great tip on the Old English as well. We have an almost-full container of this stuff under the kitchen sink that I’m going to have to pull out and play around with. Might as well use it up!

Thanks for posting these, as well as the tile link.

I’m a huge fan of Dan’s work, and I appreciate that you gave him kudo’s for the inspiration.

Great looking A&C frames and tiles. Thinking of using them in a project I’m working on now, what did you use to glue the tile in? Prices are not bad too!

Thanks again.

Paul, I used clear silicone sealant to glue the tiles to the frames.
