The latest project. Inspired greatly by a Greene and Greene frame I saw. It obviously became my own, but has some of those elements.

Very nice. Perhaps you could provide us with a few of the Details? Type of wood? Size? Joints? Etc.

Thank you.

Did you also do the scene within the border? I think the whole thing is a beautiful piece, myself. Maybe some day I will acquire that kind of skill.

Yes, I also made the scene (laid it out etc, but had a friend laser etch the back of the mirror, then painted it black.) I had done a bed in similar fashion years ago and it turned out to look similar.
The construction is mortise and tennon with a groove for the mirror. The vertical bars are 1/2” while the rest is 3/4” It ends up around 29” long and 18” high.
Material is knotty alder (I have a lot of that)
Thanks for all the positive feedback

Great work! I really like the mixture of glass and wood! The Greene and Greene style was a perfect match!
