My latest creation. The corners are half-lapped dovetails. The dovetails were made to be proud by 1/16” intentionally for effect and more visual interest.

this is very nice, like it a lot!

I had seen something similar in a chair, but the protruding tails had slight chamfers all around as opposed to being gently curved like yours.

Looks great. Beats that typical miter joint that you always see

Were you in my shop? I have been putting the design together for a picture frame similar to this but haven’t started cutting. I wanted to see an example of it to see how it looks. I must say it looks great. Nicely done.
