And the mistake was in cutting the wenge too short so that the glass did not fit in the fram. Fixed it by adding some maple strips between the mitre joint and it ended up looking quite good; IMHO of course.

The best thing about the frame is the two little munchkins in it.

Now that was cleaver, and the result has me thinking of using this on my next frame. Gives it character for sure. Nice fix.

Nice save! Some of my best “features” have been recoveries from mistakes. Looks like this made for a stronger joint as well.
