This is a carved frame I made for someone. The picture that went in it is her husband with his stepfather, which is the reason for the quote “It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons” by Johann Friedrich Von Schiller . As usual, I wish I had taken better pictures. I’m lucky my wife took a picture or I would have nothing at all. That’s my fault for procrastinating, because I ended up rushing to get this done so she could give it as a Christmas gift. I did it in white pine since it is easy to carve. There are floating tenons inside each corner. I learned it is very hard to carve small letters like this. I routed away what I could, then used a mini-dremel, gouges, and a knife. I welcome any comments, good or bad.
