My son who is a graphic design artist had taken this photo and blown it up to a size of 48” x 13”. It is a picture for his Grandpa who has had a place on this lake for 30 years. I made a simple frame from rough saw cedar butt joints with pocket screws on the back side with a 1/2 band molding around the exterior. A routed a relief on the back side 1/4×1/4 to except the picture. I wanted to show that not everything we make has to be so difficult to show it’s beauty. In this case the beauty is in the picture and I did not want to take from it.
