But they are not as easy as they look. This is a frame I made for my Sons custom photography. Made from a piece of poplar he found at Lowes. He saw it and liked the interesting grain in it. 45’s are still my achilles heel but with a little help from a neighbor I got it. Used only low gloss polyurethane. The other frame is an earlier attempt made with pine. Per his request, stain only (minwax black cherry).

I’m with you Jeff, picture frames aren’t easy for me either but you did a bang up job on this one.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I really do appreciate them. My goal for 2013 is to master the 45, learn box,finger joints, and start to work on learning the dovetail. Basics! My Son has mentioned his next frame made with box, finger joints. May get plenty of practice, but who can turn down their Son! Thanks all for looking.

That is some striking poplar! I hope your son realizes what a prize he has. A photographer’s dream having a talented frame maker so handy! Well done on both frames. Thanks for sharing.
