We’ve had a number of Shepard Fairey prints sitting around the house for a while and I finally got around to framing them.

I made the frames out of some cherry boards I had that were mostly sapwood. They were then stained with General Finishes Dark Brown water based dye and finished with satin polly.

During their construction I decided to try a joint I had never done before, a half lap miter. I must say I love this joint. It takes a bit longer to cut, but it makes the glue up so easy! The frames square themselves and dont slip under clamping pressure!!!

The edge profile was created using a panel raising bit.

Awesome frames… I’ve never done half-lap miters before either, but now I want to try them.

Also- I love shepard fairey’s works. I live in Pittsburgh, and got a chance to see an entire display of his works a few years back at the Andy Warhol Museum… really cool stuff.
