Here is a walnut picture frame I made for my wife for mothers day last year. it is a simple 11”X14” frame made with half lap joints. I decided to dress it up a bit after seeing a article in fine woodworking about nail inlay. I went with a basic vine and flower pattern. I used aluminum wire for the vine and copper nails for the flowers. I made it by drilling holes the diameter of the wire about 3/16” deep and super gluing in the wire. It was a pretty simple process, just very time consuming. I was very pleased with the results given this was my first attempt at this.
