Made these picture frames for Christmas presents for my family. Maple & mahogany, first time working with these woods. Tung oil finish. Cut the plexiglass, cut the beveled mats, printed the pictures. Finished Christmas eve. Love the look of the maple & mahogany, but they were a little more difficult to work with than anything I had used previuosly. Oak, poplar, pine.

Beautiful ! I used to be a professional picture framer in my former life, and I know excellent framing when I see it.
These are it! The word “good” will not suffice for any of your work – more like, out of this world!
