made this recently. Its a large frame for a beveled mirror. With the exception of some structural plywood in behind it is made from 100% re-claimed timber. The cove mold made on a TS (some day I gotta get me a shaper cutter for cove mould) surround re-sawn hand hewn beams which surrounds very old pine.
The inside frame will be blue stain with a chocolate glaze which will fade into the hand hewn being left natural which will fade into the hemlock cove mold which will be stained black, then rubbed out.
measure approx., 66” x 66’
The second pic is a project in progress (for the last four months) and coming to completion for my significant other. I cant stand the chaos in our dining room. It is the sub assembly for a hutch and buffet, upside down fascia and crown molding and done in watered down blue acrylic paint, lacquered twice followed with a black glaze. The bulk of the cabinets stays in its natural 200 year old patina
I did the old hand made dove tails for the drawers…..........time consuming but fun
