First time making a frame. Learned a bunch, primarily that my wife doesn’t understand why we needed a ”$600 frame”, instead of just buying a frame at the store :)

Just wait until she sees the $1000 cutting board you made because you needed to buy a drum sander.
Great looking frame, and great looking lumber. Im still amazed what some of you guys end up with for curly maple. I can not find anything near that nice here in MN.

Yup…women can be hard to please, sometimes. Most of them don’t make enough sawdust.

Marcus…Already got a used 16/32 DS…part of the reason the frame was up to $600 :)Cutting board is a good idea…that would only cost $300!

Make another and it’s a $300 frame, another and it’s a $200 frame, another and it’s a $150 frame. You’ll get the biggest return from just make one more, Plus, the maple looks great, so you saved a bunch by not needing a matte.

You’re wife’s still a rookie. Mine is past that stage. She’s trying to understand why I need 3 table saws and 3 band saws.
Beautiful work! I want one.

First picture frame is very well done, the maple and Purple Heart are a good combination.
MBS, lol, you made me laugh hard with your post.
It’s a good thing I’m divorced, my first project was a $5000 paper towel holder.

Just tell her you needed a $600 frame to show off that million dollar portrait. :-)
Mighty fine work – the dimensions are great and the miter’s are perfectly matched and tight.
