The day before Mothers day, I bought a print from a craft market.
On the way home I picked up a merbau decking board that I thought would saw down to a nice frame for the print. I’d never seen this timber before, but it was heavy, dark and a lot of pitch came out when I machined it. It reminds me a bit of walnut.
Construction was plain mitre joints cut on the table saw (I’ve really got my mitre gauge dialled in). I cut a 1/4” slot in the frame rails and glued in some plywood that formed not only the backing, but added a lot of strength to the frame.
Finished in danish oil. Print glued on using “spray glue”.
Very well received by Mum!
