Dowelled Cherry Frame for Needlework

My wife made a large cross-stich piece that she wanted me to frame.

I’m fond of dowels. I enjoy figuring out these multi-lap joints which I make using a tennoning jig.

The needlework was fastened to a panel I made out of some scrap fir, which was inserted in the slots in the frame.

The frame is not glued, just held dry by the dowels.

Finish is two coats of Formby’s Tung Oil finish.

Now that is some fancy joinery! I couldn’t duplicate that even with detailed instructions and pictures. Excellent job!

Thanks, gfadvm!

I haven’t been on LJ in some time, but I remember you and appreciate your comments.

This was done in the same way as the other joints I posted on a blog some while back. I remember we discussed putting the digital readout on the tennoning jig.

You have a good memory!

Decided I liked my shop made tenoning jig better than the store bought one.
