We have a wedding to go to tonight, so earlier in the week, we were trying to decide what to get the new couple. My wife got some stuff, but I decided to make a frame. This was my first attempt at a frame of any kind, so was extremely pleased. It’s spalted maple (I love this stuff) and meant to hold an 11×14 picture, or a matte with an 8×10 picture. It’s finished with about 4 coats of Arm-N-Seal.

Thanks for looking,

Chris

A very nice and thaughtful gift. You did a nice job. the choice of compound miters on your first ever frame was a bold and brave plan. Woodworking is more fun when you keep trying new and chalinging tasks.

Thank you, both. The truth on the compound miters, oluf, is I didn’t grasp the complexity of what I was doing, haha. My wife just asked me to “try” and it fortunately did work out, but she was ready to go buy something if I couldn’t make it work.

Have your say...
