I made this frame from some scrap flooring I had around from a house project. I was actually just trying to test the setup of my miter saw but then it looked pretty nice so I made a frame. I didn’t want to strip the finish off and redo since it was pre-finished floor. I just cut off the tonuge and groove sides and then routed a recess for the picture and a detail on the outside. I painted the cut edges with flat black paint which is kind of a neat contrast to the high gloss top.
For the back I used a clear piece of plexiglass so the newspaper article would be visible. This print is a collage of my city that was done by a local artist who was highlighted in the paper.
