This is my version of scrap wood management! My uncle does 3inch thick pine slabs for kitchens, bars and islands. The slabs start out with live edge on both sides. He then cuts one side off for a square back. In doing so he ends up with pieces 3 to 6 inches wide that he would usually throw on the burn pile. The left over pieces now end up at my shop where i make picture frames and mirror frames out of them. When i first made these i was super exicted about taking them to a craft show and selling them. I thought for certain people would buy them as fast as i could make them….....WRONG! We had our first show of the year two weeks ago and not one person even said anything about them. I had 18$ on them. i dont think it was too much seeing how you go to walmart and buy a crappy frame for upwards of 20$. Who knows i guess. I absolutly love them tho!!!!!!

I don’t get it. They look awesome to me. You never know with the sales, next one you attend they may sell like hot cakes. I guess it depends on the crowd that shows up. Anyway, great job on the rustic frames. Thanks for posting them.

Love them too! Unique and pretty frames, like the different shapes and the knots. Good luck on the next show!
