I carved this frame over a weekend for my boss at the time. The client liked a commercially available frame pattern, (shown in 4th photo), but hated the mismatched corners and wanted this to be an enclosure more than just a frame.
I underestimated how long it would take to carve nearly 16 feet of moulding! (Took 11 hours!) It did create an opportunity to add two new gouges to my Pfiel lineup though. Totally worth it!
For those nubies out there who might not have a workshop, this was carved on the dining room table of the apartment I was renting at the time. I was cleaning out wood chips until the day I moved out too! :-D
EDIT: I wasn’t around for the make something from a 2X4 contest, but this was made from standard pine 2X6’s from HD.
