This is a tile frame that I built to hold a pair of Koi fish tiles. The frame is made from quartersawn white oak and oak plywood. The frame is 20.5” wide and 20.5” high. The crest rail is 7/8”, the stiles are 3/4”, the bottom rail is 5’8” and the center stile is 1/2”. Construction is pegged mortise and tenon joints. The frame is dyed with honey amber aniline dye, walnut gel stain glaze and topcoated with General Finishes Satin Arm-R-Seal. Photo 1-3 show the finished frame and some of the wood grain in the qswo. Photo 4 is the finished frame after being dyed and sealed with Trans Tint honey amber dye and a seal coat of General Finishes Seal-A-Cell Tung oil. Photo 5 is a joint before gluing and pegging. The final picture shows the beginning of the design process for the frame.
