In Japan, when you win a prize for a contest, you usually get a certificate (document), and one of my niece just got one for a drawing contest. I promised her to make a frame for that, and here it is.
It’s zelkova, and used a router bit called, “Hyo-tan” in Japanese (maybe ” Radius Roman Ogee Router Bit ” in English?!), which I usually don’t use because it’s too fancy… But for this project, I thought it just fits well.
And the niece has an older sister, so I made one little project for her too. An oak photoframe.

hello jungi

these both look well made
congratulations to all of you

like you i don’t use those fancy bit’s either much
to ‘colonial’ for the work i do

it does bring out some design lines
and makes the frame border the certificate better
as you intended

happy kids

well done

Nice work. Bet she is prouder of that than her prize certificate in it :-))
