We recently visited the Stickley Museum and picked up this Yamamoto print as a souvenir. The print is only available from the Museum and it pictures the only house Stickley designed. Originally, it sat on 600 acres in NJ and produce was grown for his restaurant in NYC which is about 30 miles away. Today, the museum only has a few acres of land, primarily, because of the high NJ taxes. The matting, etc, was done professionally, i.e. not by me.

The frame is pretty typical A&C style. The quarter sawn white oak was finished with Minwax Golden Oak stain and 2 coats of Arm-R-Seal. Yes, more Domino joinery as I attempt to make that machine pay for itself. haha

Great frame for a great print. Yoshiko’s artwork is on the short list of my all-time favorites. She’s very active on the west coast art fair circuit, and she is such a sweet person.

I have to be careful with my road trips. The last one I went to was the Pasadena Craftsman Weekend, where I was inspired to build a Limbert style window bench. It turned into a magazine article, which is in the current issue of Woodworker’s Journal. My wife wants to go again this year, and I’m worried about the snowball effect… you go looking for a vacation, and end up starting two or three more projects. Oh well, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Cheers to you Art and the inspiring work you do!

Good looking frame for a Yamamoto print. I have 3 of her prints I still need to frame. This gives me an idea.

Thanks to everyone that has viewed this project and even more to those that have commented.

Willie, I like your bench; maybe my interior decorator will find a space that could benefit from one. :) I really like the FLW fabric on the pillow. Where did you find it?

Earl, I’m always happy to help. :)

Splint, you are more than a little over the top with that last comment. Its a frame, not the bloody Mona Lisa! :D

The FLW pillow was actually from Taliesin West in Scottsdale.
