Oak Picture Frames

Three frames for a customer done in oak. The first two photos show an oak frame that has been ebonized with ink. I added birdseye maple inlays that wrap around the frame. My new router plane sure came in handy for that job. The third picture shows a frame I built to the customer’s specifications only to find out it was 4 inches to narrow. Someone needs to teach him how to use a measuring tape. We salvaged that frame by dismantling it and ripping each piece in half. I used those pieces to frame two smaller prints. The next three photos show the results.

I’ll add that as usual these frames were 90% hand tools. A few sizing cuts on the table saw at the beginning is all.

Nice job on the frames, and salvaging the one that was too small.
Could I ask how thick the board is that you made this 3rd frame from? by the picture it looks thicker than 3/4” to me. I’ve been looking around at different pictures for some ideas to make some for my wife and i think i would like to try some along this style.

Thanks Mas. Not sure exactly how thick it was. I work with hand tools and don’t really measure things like that. It started out around 7/8” if I remember correctly. So somewhere between 3/4” and 7/8”.

Thanks for letting new know.
I try not to fixate on exact sizes when I can get away with it. At times my machinist background comes out and I try to hard to get exact diminsions though.

Have your say...
