This was done as a wedding present for my Brother and New Sister-in-Law, who were married Yesterday, 23 October 2010.
Months ago my Brother inquired about me making some frames for him and how much they would cost. I talked around the subject for a while until he basically forgot about them and started working on what you see pictured above.
I wanted the frames to differ, but still be all tied together with common woods, so I went with cherry and walnut.
The 11×14 is very nicely grained walnut with surface mounted cherry keys.
The 8×10 is walnut as well, but this time I used recessed cherry keys and square cherry plugs as accent pieces – kind of a craftsman style.
The two 5×7’s are two different kinds of cherry (choke and ornamental) with surface mounted walnut keys.
All the frames are just over an inch thick.
All the frames were finished with two coats of rubbed tung oil and then a bunch of coats of furniture wax with polishing in between each coat.
They were finished around two weeks ago, but since my brother reads this site, I couldn’t post them until this morning. :-)
Congratulations Scott & Danielle!!!!
