“How’d you get into woodworking?” I have gotten the standerd “My dad tought me when I was a kid” to some real odd ball stories.
I got into woodworking mainly in art school. Though I’d grown up messing in my dad’s shop it wasn’t til college that I realized the vercitility of wood. I took a presentation class and hd to make custom frames for a bunch of my paintings. I had as much fun making the frames as I did painting the pictures and I’ve been pittifully hooked ever since.
This is a new painting that I had to frame. I thought about framing the piece from the first brush stroke.

very cool painting… how big is the frame, what kind of wood did you use, and what kind of finish did you use?

Yes I do have a blog The wood I used is just good ole pine we milled on our sawmill. All my frames have splined corners. This one was textured using a very corse rasp and them painted with acrylic paint. Before a shot of Laquer I sand it back for a destressed look.

That’s a cool painting, introspective and really cool colors and shapes. Great gorilla!

I love the shadow box type frames, I make much the same, but I glue black felt in the recessed part, really makes the painting float. Could be painted black. I don’t know how you mounted the picture, but I use big sections of velcro glued on the back of the hard board. . Then I can remove easily if I want to change frames.

Yea, that’s one of the main reasons I built my shop too. Frames are expensive.

Cool man…..........................
