Just a simple rustic 8×10 picture frame from wormy chestnut. The wood was given to my by a friend who was remodeling his house. This was originally wainscoting in his family room. It was getting banged up and broken and his wife wanted it GONE! One man’s junk = another man’s treasure. He gave me a call and I got it outta there just as fast as I could! It was almost a full pick up load! Win-Win situation for everyone!

Great save and recycle of the wood. The frame looks good even with the holes.
