Dovetailed Picture Frame

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.

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.
