Here are some Zebrawood and Peruvian walnut frames that I recently finished. I started with a nice piece of very straight grained Zebrawood and edge glued a series of 10” and 14” wide blanks that I crosscut into 2” wide strips. Ripped 1/8” strips on the table saw with a 7 1/4” super thin, super cheap Freud blade. Glued them to 1/2” baltic birch plywood with Peruvian walnut on the back. Covered the plywood edges and cut perfect miters with my new Incra jig—the cheap one, but it works great! I will end up with over twenty 4×6 frames with from that ~ 7 ft long piece of zebrawood! Finished with Tung Oil. Thanks for looking.
