I’m not sure if this counts as a wood gloat, but one of my local lumber yards had a 7 foot strip of reclaimed rustic cherry moulding sitting in their discount bin – $2. The routed edges were nicked up, so two other guys passed it up. I grabbed it. I cut of the edges, rerouted them and made a picture frame for a cool old barn that I photographed a while back. The matting cost more then the picture and wood combined. Finish is Arm-R-Seal 3 coats.

I love how the color of the wood works with the color of the grass in the picture. The black mat plays well with the dark streaks in the cherry. Love the picture. Love the frame.
“Rustic” is what carpenters call it when something doesn’t fit right. I wouldn’t call your frame rustic.
