Hey Lj’s,
Here are a couple of frames that were made out of left over white oak, the joints are half laps, edges are rounded and the inside has a 45 bevel on it. The plugs are Walnut and wth Tung oil Finish on the lighter frame, the darker frame has General Gel Stain and White Oak plugs wth Lacquer. I just finished a total remodel on our basement bathroom and Yes, that is Fuzzy wallpaper. I could not resist keeping a pc of that 70’s wallpaper,so it’s a tribute to all Disco Freaks.

Enjoy

Nice looking frames ,half lap joinery came out on top for strength during a torture test that FWW did.

Very good work. The half lap is a super strong joint, looks great and is a bit friendlier to use in picture frames. The pegs add to the A & C style.

Nice addition of the routing chamfer.

The edge details are cool – like Greene and Greene. By the way, disco freaks rule!

Pinned half laps are the best.
