Just two simple picture frames. Made with some cut-offs from my over flowing scrap bin.
Cherry with Maple corners. 8 1/2” X 7 1/4” with a lacquer finish. in the photo is my wife’s parents and Our son with his wife and our two Granddaughters. I’m still waiting on a better picture to put in them. This one is a bit grainy!
Thanks for peeking in!

A great design there. Nothing better than a cool project from the scrap pile!

Thanks for sharing,

Super cool design buddy. A great way to reduce the scrap all the while creating beautiful objects.

Kiefer,
The little square corners are only 1/2” thick and about 1 1/2 ” square so I just used some yellow Titebond and light clamping and they hold up well. I have made 4 frames like this in the past two years and so far they are all still intact with no fails. I was going to put a spline in them but decide to try a it without. They hold up ok! But I wouldn’t want to drop one! They just sit on our mantel so I guess they are safe!
