These are 2 frames I made for a reprint of a painting. The print is 12×18 and frames are 3.5 and 1.75 wide with biscuits in each corner. I cut the rabbit in the back on the table saw this time with dado blades instead of doing it on the router table. The dado was much easier and a cleaner cut. Then I decided to make a branding iron after work yesterday on the CNC mill since I finally decided on a logo. I made this out of brass and does quite nice with a propane torch. Got it done today just in time to burn it into these 2 frames I am giving away tonight. It would not heat up enough being a full inch thick , so I milled material off the back leaving a boss for the handle to thread into, leaving the top about 1/4” thick and now it heats up in a jiffy. I just need to practice the timing and temp now.
