I had 2 days to build these frames for a new office building grand opening. The prints came from Wisconsin. I built these using 1×5 for the bottom base and added a 2×2” block around the print per customer design . 10 frames were made, some over 8’ tall. I hung them using Rockler flush mount brackets. Fun project, especially starting at 1am the day of install. It had to be finished on time, the Governer was going to see them at the grand opening party.
