this is another of my creations.
made of walnut european.
belive it or not hand carved all the way through.
well, miter too, no mashinery involved or other electrical tools apart from ligt.
the shape of the molding, the wood layout and the making is my own.

The lines that display in this are amazing. I really like the frame. Ok, how did you carve the shape of the molding (handplanes?)?

This is a stunning frame. To create something like this without the use of power tools is truly a masterful job.

Well done.

Extremely well done.

The wood is gorgeous, and deserves the kind of attention you have given it.

I think the picture detracts from the frame.

I admire you… machinery ?

For me, a tool that is not connected to a cord or doesn’t have a battery…is not a tool :-)

Beautiful work

Thank you very much to all of you.
To be honest did not expect so many responds on my work.
Was trying to answer on every one but now is imposible – to many.
I will write here then.
About how – chisels – no hand molding planes apart from sholder one to make straight guide line.
If you can see the grain is not long ones to the lenght of the four sides.
It is short grain other wise won’t be imposible to get the wooden picture.
The miters were done by sawing first – japanese saw, and planing – a bit dificult not to chip the edge.
The rest is laquering, well my combination of diferent resins and alcohol.

I noticed the grain orientation right away …it is awesome !!!....Love the frame and your skills , but the picture really doesn’t go with the quality of the frame…..JMO…I like the picture , just not with the frame.

Thank you,
I do agree that the picture is faiding a way in such a striking frame.
I probably become use to it’s combination.
Do not know but feels exactly as I have imagined it – an English landscape in English walnut frame.
