Well, the wife finally cornered me and demanded I make a frame for the two bamboo prints she bought 2 years ago. Varied my normal Arts and Crafts style a bit to give it more of an Asian feel. Frame is made of African Mahogany, Black Walnut and Ebony. Each print is 12” X 36” and the overall frame is 42” x 36”. Finish is tung oil and varnish. Thanks for looking.

That’s beautiful, Tim. I like the combination of woods, and the varied length of the joining strips at center. Great original design!

Thanks, Barb. The strips in the center were inspired by the tie or button loops on a kimono.

the prints are colorful & quite striking. I think you did a bang up job on the frame. A super piece.
