Here are some frames I’ve made recently. The first is what I was told is some spalted red oak. Can’t really tell in this frame, but it has some beautiful grain. It’s an 11×14 shadow box style frame. The glass is set into the frame about 5/32” above the matting. Did the double matting myself too. It’s made to fit two 5×7 pics.

The other is a walnut frame with 3/4” wide zebrawood inlay. My first attempt and I was quite happy. This one is an 8×10 that was also matted for a 5×7 if wanted. Both were finished with 3 coats of satin wipe-on poly.

Nice work on the frames. The matting turned out really good. I’ll bet that saved quite a bit on the overall cost of materials.

The walnut/zebrawood combination turned out great. Good eye for the colors. Thanks for sharing.
