This frame was made to display three vintage postcards of the Wickenburg/Phoenix, AZ area.

The frame is Rift-Sawn White Oak and the pegs are Black Walnut. This frame wasn’t glued – the pegs hold everything together. Finish is MinWax Antique Oil.

At first I thought it looked a bit “chunky”, but after looking at it for a bit, the proportions work well with the size of the postcards.

Very nice!

DragonLady – I see what you mean about it looking chunky at first glance. I think part of that is the fact that I have a wide-angle lens on the camera and took the picture fairly close, which makes the frame looks like it has a slight bulge in the center. I should have taken some photos from a more realistic distance. Photography is the next woodworking skill I need to work on!
