The first one is and 8×10 frame of my paternal grand parents with my dad and my aunt —-taken in 1923. It is for my younger sister. It is a picture I took of the actual picture that my older sister has.. It is a red oak frame with a glass insert. The next one shows the three frames I made. Each one has two steps routed in the back. One is for the glass, the photo and a piece of cardboard. The outer step if for the wood strips I cut to hold all this stuff in. I mitered them to fit the opening and then drilled some .055 holes at an angle for small nails to secure them.
The next frame is a round white oak frame for my wife’s latest stained glass project. It was made from 6 segments and after I got done ,the cross section was pretty small and I thought the joints might be weak, so I milled in small key slots and installed walnut keys across the joints to reinforce them. The raw wood photos show the front and back of that round frame after the keys were glued in. The glass piece is to be held in with caulking which I have yet to do
Two were stained with Zar 120 stain and I used Michaels Cherry on the round one and one of the rectangular ones.
