These are a couple of special order tile frames made for Laura Reutter of Ravenstone Tiles. Made of quarter sawn white oak with true mortise and tennon pegged construction. I ebonized and pillowed the 1/4” pegs. The tiles pictured are the tiles that will be installed in the frames when the customer receives them. The tiles are 4” x 12”. The plywood back has been painted flat black so when the tile is installed it will blend with the edges of the tiles.

I updated the pictures to show the tiles mounted in the frames. Ravenstone Tiles took the last two pictures after she got the tiles mounted.

Great looking frames, and your finish is absolutely outstanding. If you didn’t actually fume it, how did you get that beautiful finish

@Jim, thank you.

@HillbillyShooter, Thank you for you compliment. I did not fume the frames. The finish is a water based dye, then a oil stain and then lacquer.
