I made four of these frames for Christmas presents. All are identical, made with soft maple and finished with three coats of water-based satin clear-coat. This is a picture of my daughter and her new companion, Russell. He was adopted at TAPS in Pekin, our local non- kill shelter. He was there for over a year. They visited us over the holiday and Russell got along fine with our dog, Mia. He is a very nice kitty and is great company for Susie. Thanks for looking,

Thanks Guys. I used a miter sled made for my old Bosch TS. I was happy with the fit. Thanks for looking!

I have a frame just like it! I am Jack’s sis-in-law and I received one of the four as a Christmas gift. It IS beautiful and made with love, I’m sure. Now I got to see Russell! He looks just like our Klaus AND Rocky.
