I wanted to use the planer to cut the bevels for this frame,so I made a simple jig & the beveled Maple came out just great. Trimmed with Mahogony beads. Tung oil finish. My Miter trimmer ( guillotine ) is one of the best investments I ever made. The photo is my oldest Grandson, currently in basic traing at Ft. Jackson.

Nice work. Do you have a cut off remaining that shows the profile detail? I posted some frames a while back and wished I had done that.

Great looking frame. Love the wood and colors! Nice looking young man as well I wish him well in the Armed Services. My yrs in the US Navy aboard the USS Enterprise CVN 65 were some of the most challenging yet rewarding times in my life.

I like the frame, especially the maple/mahogony contrast. You will have to build another frame for the new Army soldier in uniform. My son did his basic at Ft. Jackson 3 years ago in August…..very hot. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your kind comments. For DouginVa, I posted these photos. 12 degee bevel. Cut the shallow rabbet on the outside before I planed the bevel. Left 1/4” flat on top.
