Rustic Frame

After about 7 years we finally decided to get our Idaho map mounted on foam board and plexiglass cut for it. Next came the frame. To buy a frame for a product this size was way to expensive, so I headed done to the local salvage yard and picked up some old boards for $10 bucks. I wanted to preserve the natural edges so I decided to use butt joints and pocket screws for the joinery. Once together I routed out the back so that the print and glass would fit into it.

Very nice, IMO only way to display old prints is in a rustic frame.

Terrific rustic frame. Nice balance and symmetry on the frame!

Great looking frame. May keep this idea in mind for some future frames, I wish I did woodworking back when we had our maps framed.
