Well it’s been a long summer/Fall. Although I haven’t posted much I’ve been busy.
My sister and brother in law renewed there vows recently so I wanted to make them a special gift. I found this picture frame project in a WWJ Magizine and decided to give it a go. It was one of those simple projects that gets very involved. As you can see I cut, routed, sanded about 200+ blocks for the mosaic which is made from Santa Maria wood. The frame is oak ply that has been pocket holed together. The plan called for laminating thinner ply to make the frame but I had plenty of 3/4. The last pic is of a frame I made based on my own design. I call it a chase pattern (each rail follows the next). That one is made of oak with santa maria trim.
They where both finished with clear shellac and water based poly gloss.
Thanks for looking…
