My first project post. A few frames I made this weekend. The first is curly maple and black walnut. The second is pallet wood. It had red grain in it which is why I chose the red inlay. I think the wood is box elder. The third is all pallet wood.

These are some really cool frames! The pallet wood one, is that the secondary method of joining? Did you use any hardware? I love making frames, but I hate using nails. I want to just use glue and wood. :)

-- Have a happy day!

WebErika, no hardware or mechanical fasteners. Only glue. I’ll use a slot cutter on the router and biscuits for frames wider than 2 inches.
