That is a very beautiful frame. What type joints did you use on the corners if I may ask?

Beautiful frame!

Could you post a picture of the back of the frame? I am interested in how you mounted an oil painting.

This is a gorgeous frame. The woods compliment each other and the picture well. This is certainly a unique style of frame. This is an absolutely beautiful piece.

Thanks for the post.

I am in awe of your work – that is undoubtedly the most beautiful frame that I have ever seen! The different woods accent one another and the workmanship is superb. And, since I love Kinkaid paintings, it is extra special to me. Hope you got a good price for your work as it is certainly worth it.

I’m glad you chose a painting that doesn’t detract from the woodwork! Very cool.

WOW, beautiful. I also paint and draw, they would not see my work, LOL. NO really, I’d love something that beautiful around my work.
