I have quite a bit of wormy chestnut from a barn that I helped rebuild back around 2005. One of these picture frames has a roman ogee profile and the other is just square. I think I like the square one better. I also added walnut splines as a method of reinforcing the joints. They were topped off with one coat of tung oil and two coats of wipe on poly. I would like to add these to my etsy account if I can ever figure it out. \

Nice, I love rustic pieces.
