My wife just finished her southwest stained glass project and requested a frame. We bought the Hickory at Keim Lumber in Ohio ( what a woodworker’s candy store)!!!
It is 14 1/4” x 29 1/2” with 3/16” x 3/8” beading nailed in the back to secure the glass.

It is finished with clear matte spray.

Cheers, Jim

Great frame and quite an impressive stained glass picture as well Jim! Your wife is very talented. I love stained glass scenes. It looks very similar to marquetry work and that makes me wonder if the techniques for creating them have any similarities.

Beautiful scenery of Arizona by your wife. That alone would need no frame. You did good too making brownie points.

Jim, you and your wife make a great team!! It is always enjoyable when my wife and I do things together as in this project and in this one I have been so busy with parents this summer that I really haven’t had much time to be in the shop. However have managed to make eight jewelry boxes for Christmas that I haven’t been able to post because the girls like to watch my postings. Hopefully they won’t read this one. Hopefully we will be able to get to Florida this winter with the help of siblings we might be able to.

I had really wanted to get together with you this summer but because of parental issues that just hasn’t worked out.

Your work is outstanding and makes me envious that I have this awesome shop and the door is mostly locked ;( Perhaps next year will be different.

Thanks for posting!!
