Peruvian Walnut picture frame with Maple splines. It’s finished with satin Arm-R-Seal This is a Christmas gift for my mother in law. The picture is of a tree on the River Walk in San Antonio and measures 24” x 16”. I wanted to go with something almost black (without blowing the budget) to blend with the b/w picture better but didn’t think about staining it until it was already done. Hindsight is 20/20. Thanks for looking.

Very nice frame Ben. I for one like the frame as brown, it has a very nice curl and grain. And it gives focus to the picture. Great picture too, the contrast is beautiful :)
