Picture frame I made for a poster I got online, figured it would be neat to do a different joint at every corner. Kind of wish I would have went more fancy with some of the joints but it turned out alright. Wood is cherry, maple and walnut.

I like the joint at the bottom right corner. Never seen one like that. What’s it called, or how did you do it?

I love this. It’s a great poster for the shop and looks very nice in that frame. Were did you get the poster? Nice work on the frame.
