Many so-called weekend projects can’t really be finished over a weekend; this one is a weekend project that all levels of woodworkers can complete on a Saturday or Sunday. And it’s dirt cheap: all one needs is some scrap pieces. I used left-over walnut moldings (which have a nice profile), a glass and mat from an old picture frame, and made myself a frame for a pyrography work I did back in May. Not only did I have time to finish the picture frame, I even found time to repaint my deck afterwards. I wish I could be as productive in my regular job (or may be not!).
frame and glass / mat: $0
picture hardware: $0.5
sanding paper / spray satin top coats: $1 (?)
pyrography: $25 (the seminar cost)
art work hung on wall: PRICELESS
