The frame is made of cherry with maple splines. Finish is Arm-R-Seal; two coats gloss, one coat satin, final coat is satin with naphtha mix (about 50-50). Thanks for looking.

Nice looking frame, Steve. How did you create the profile?

Jack: Thanks for the compliment. The profile was created with three bits; the majority was created with an Eagle America picture frame bit (http://www.eagleamerica.com/product/v165-0105/ea_-_edge_forming, specifically #165-0305), and the other two were 1/8” and 1/2” round over bits. Oh yeah, I also used a rabbeting bit to create the rabbet for the mirror to sit in. Thanks for asking.
