This was made out of the scrap left over from the spice rack. I made it for my sister who LOVES wolves. The photo in the frame is actually the Christmas card that she sent me. I think she’ll like getting it back.

It measures 10’’ wide by 8 1/2’’ tall and is 1/4’’ thick.

I sanded it down real well, applied Danish oil (twice) and then applied a wax on top of that and buffed the heck out of it.

Oh, by the way, I didnt have a cut list for this. LOL

Thanks for looking. I’m getting there…..slow but sure.

Very nice picture frame. I like the design and joint work.

I am working on a Cedar mirror that is 24×18. It has miter joints at each corner and I plan on installing Maple bow tie or heart inlays at each corner overlapping the miter joints. It is a hallway entrance mirror with a shelf across the bottom, coat hooks centered on each side and key hooks under the shelf. No plans, just something I put together based on a couple of pictures.
