This six sided frame was designed and built for a tall ship painting that never materialized. I had fun with the details. The pirate skull and crossbones flag is a bit of marquetry. The anchor is carved pieces assembled. The rocks are real stones. An interesting feature not shown is the retainer that holds it all together in the back. It is a rubber tape that looks like quarter round pressed into a groove all around. This allows changes to be made without tools.

Nice pirate frame. If you don’t have the mirror yet, go to a resale shop and find one cheap and cut it to shape with a glass cutter! Buying a new one to that shape will cost a bunch.

This is already fitted with glass that I cut. Thanks for the tip though. Depends on who wants it.
