Well, I have been working on this little project for longer than I want to admit. I had to set up a router table and then had to learn how to use. Easy for some but I ain’t some,lol. I took the frame to the local Hobby Lobby
where the nice little gal worked some magic and made things look really sweet. Of course,we are proud of him. He is employed by the “Great Yellow God” here in central IL and we hope he finds a place he can call his own… VERY SOON!!! Thanks for the look-see, Jack.

Good job. Frames are harder than they look especially when you don’t know all the tricks that the LJs mention on this site. Keep making them. It’s a good way be learn about new woods, and to break in new router bits.

Thanks, lanwater. We spent 23 years on the kid side of the project :) By the way, you don’t just work wood you are an artist!

Hey cr1, He didn’t think it was such a big deal. As for me, growing up in Peoria all my life and my son graduating from BU magna cum laude… one of the proudest days of my life! Is this a gloat? Don’t turn me in, please.
