My son in law asked me to make a frame for a plaque he had hanging in his garage. He wanted it to be lighted also.
I used Maple for this 27” frame. I first made an octagon and then used a homemade circle cutter on my router to cut the octagon round. The stain is Early American and the finish is polyurithine. He loved it !

Good job. You pulled it off beautifully. The rope lighting was a good idea. The uniformity of lighting really shows off that sharp plaque.

Now, that’s really neat. The lights are great. Beautiful frame.
