This is a frame I made for my wife. Nothing extravagant, but I just love the texture of this piece of wood. No two frames of mine are exactly alike, as the weather and sun gives each piece its own personality.

Great frame Hawg. I am a real sucker for that raw, natural look. And I agree with Dennis about the drawing being really nice too. Thanks for sharing.

I glued the miter, then used a miter clamp, and shot 18 gauge brads or staples in corners. The staples work best on these pieces.

Thanks for the comments on the frame and picture.
I love the image of a cowboy humbling himself in prayer. All too often, when I was cowboying, we all thought it was US….LOL Picture sure is a great one! Praise His Name!
