The wood is quarter sawn red oak, and the joints are pegged mortise and tenon. Stain is rodda #19 with two coats of sprayed pre-cat lacquer. The stock is 3/4” thick, with the wider stiles 1-3/4” wide and the narrow stiles 1” wide.

That is a very beautiful frame. I really like the design. Is it your own creation? Thanks.

Mike-
Yes I drew up a plan on google sketchup. I found that I like a hint of Asian design with angled ends and subtle arches. When I drew plans with arches on top of the frame they looked decidedly Asian, and I didn’t care for them as much.
