I built this triptych display case for 3 large mounted photos that were made by my grandfather. He was commissioned by a local church to create this piece. He asked me to make the frames. He requested the wooden hinges which he thought would convey a sense that this is an ancient piece of art. I enjoyed designing and making the wooden hinges. It took several tries to get the right proportions where they were noticeable but not overwhelming. This piece required many identical arch pieces. Making all of these pieces match was the most difficult part. All frame parts are joined by mortise and tenon.
