The whole reason I started woodworking, about 9 months ago now, was to make frames out of exotic woods for some of my nature pictures. The frames in the first picture are (l-r) walnut, shedua, and cocobolo. The second picture is a close-up of the walnut and cocobolo. The third picture is bocote, which is an amazing wood. The frames in the fourth picture are zebrawood and spalted ash.
Frames are harder to make than they look. It can be a struggle sometimes to get the 90’s to sit flush. It’s definitely worth it in the end, though.
As always, thanks for looking.
