The reason I really started woodworking was to make picture frames to sell my photographs with. I decided on a shaker style halflap as it would show off the joint and the wood. Seems more hand made than a simple miter joint. First frame is curly Lyptus which I really liked working with. Can’t seem to find it much anymore. Second is Madrone. Worked like a dream and looks very nice. Last is a few pics of a beech frame I made. All are covered in several coats of a wiping varnish.

Good looking frames which showcase more the beauty of the photos. Well done!

Thanks Smitty. That’s the cleanest that bench ever was when I took those pics. HAHA!
