I have a good friend who is into dog sled racing. A good friend of his made him a stained glass dog sled picture. However, he didn’t have any way of displaying it. I built this frame, from the basic design of the frame in the Gamble house.
It is built of quartersawn white oak. The construction is all mortise and tenon, with Ebony plugs through the mortise and tenon. This way, the weight and time shouldn’t cause the frame to separate. The finish was created using a series of dyes for the coloring and then 6 coats of wipe-on poly.
This project presented a challenge because the picture was not square and the lead solder joints were not flat. Fitting it into the frame wasn’t as straight forward as I would have liked.
