This is such an easy way to make a frame
It is Bur/Burl Wyche Elm
Finished with a kind of Danish Oil
Then de-nibbed with 0000 steel wood
with Beeswax, left to dry and scrubbed with
a hard cloth.
The back has a 1/2” recess for either picture
I make a jig for the rebate & use a ski to mill the
rest of it. to suit the cut out. Then I cut out the
centre last. Makes the process much easier.
The students often make these and it always gets
a great response
-- Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others, and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though 'twere his own. --Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
