Frame made from walnut with maple inlay (actually, the maple inlay is itself inlayed with a walnut strip – this inlayed “subassembly” is then glued to the main walnut frame members).

The glue the first 3 frame members together by hand; no clamps involved. Holding the individual corners together for a few minutes and being careful to wipe away the glue squeeze-out using wetted cue tips, this sequential glue-up method allows easier alignment of corners, as I can focus on one corner at a time (as opposed to 4 corners simultaneously in a framing clamp). Only the final member is glued using a clamp.

I have a few more frames to do to document some family summer vacations – then its on to my first furniture piece (book case).

Thanks in advance for any comments/suggestions.

The splines add a nice touch that I bet few people will really appreciate.
Great corners….................

Great wood combo and tight joints make your frame look great. Well done!

Have your say...
