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.
