Our first great grand child is due in November. In his honor, I decided to make a special picture frame for his mom. The way the family has been talking, it appears he is going to be a cowboy, he just doesn’t it yet. :-)
I bought a piece of reclaimed barnwood for the frame. Turns out, it is cedar about 13/16 inches thick.
The wood is very weathered and has numerous cracks and splits.
So, I drizzled some Titebond III into the cracks and clamped it to close the cracks.
Even though the board was kinda rough, the frame turned out really nice and square.
Note: To test the frame, I added a sample picture from my sports photography days.
The frame is made for 8×10 or smaller (using a mat board).
