A request from my wife. Grandson and Lady Friend Prom photo need a frame.
I dove into my scrap bin and found some nice pieces. This is why I keep all those little scraps!
The picture is a 5” X 7” and the frame outside dimensions are 7 1/2” X 9 1/2”. The finish is lacquer.
Now she has a matching larger one to go with the smaller one I made for her last year. Once again! I got some smiles and a big hug for my efforts!
To make the hinge a bit stiff to move I add a drop of epoxy to the hinge and set holder at the angle I want as it hardens. I warm the epoxy so it will flow into the hinge.
