This is a frame I made for the “Gamble House – Dusk” print by Yoshiko Yamamoto. The frame contains some of the Greene and Greene details, but lends more towards an Arts and Crafts style. The frame is from Oregon Black Walnut, felled, milled and dried over 30 years ago by my partner in the shop. The accents are African Ebony ranging from ¼” to 3/8”. The frame is constructed with through mortise and tenon joints and a bit of lattice work with half-lap joints. I tried to design the frame to draw the eye to the art. I think the frame compliments the print and shall hang as our favorite piece of art in our home – a present for my wife for her birthday!

Well proportioned, good choice in material, and well executed with fine craftsmanship.

Nice work as always no matter the project – wouldn’t expect anything less from your shop;)

Very nice design and craftsmanship. Frames are one of those things in my shop that make it to the paper, but are always slow making it to the actual build. Thanks for the post.

As usual, your stuff is phenomenal. Yoshiko was very nice and signed one of her prints for us. Looks like I better get back into the shop.

Lovely work! And, the print by Yoshiko is killer. I’ve got the A&C framed artwork bug too! Great attention to design and detail.

Thanks all! – Todd, as always I appreciate comments from a master craftsman! – Scully – I look forward to seeing what you come up with – I got an email from Yoshiko’s husband, Bruce – They have family in Japan (all okay) and extended family going to Japan to help – All our thoughts are with them now. ....Again, thanks all!

Great frame my man. I love the style. I especially like the pairing of it with the Gambele house print. Outstanding!

I just came across this frame – great work!
I like the peg details, and the half lap strips are unique and compliment the matting well.
Yamamoto is one of my favorite artists, and the Gamble house is a great piece.

Well done – that will be a pleasure to pass by this picture each and every time!
