This is an Arts and Crafts style picture frame I made for my cousins graduation. it is made out of Oak with is dyed with General Finishes Vintage Cherry. I wanted to do something different to join the sides so i joined them with hand cut half blind dovetails with are in the second picture. then i pinned the dovetails and added a decorative look in the corners by making an Ebony triangle peg. I home made it out of a 3/8” square piece of Ebony. lastly i put on a coat of Seal-coat and 2 coats of Arm-R-Seal. This project was a really fun one that took me at least 6 or 7 hours but it was worth it as it looks great and i tried out a lot of cool things. i also have this whole thing on film and it will be the next episode of the Teen Age Woodworker.

You did a really nice job on this frame. The ebony accents give the frame a nice visual element and add strength to the joint.

Well done.
