Well i just got a commission for a picture frame from a friend of the families. they want it to be made out of hickory to match their cabinets and they want the design to be the same as that of their cabinets. here is what i came up with on sketchup.

so i just ordered the wood from Goosebay Lumber which i have tried before and i was happy with what i got so i figured that i would go back to them. as always though i treated myself to some other small pieces of wood along with my order. I got a 1 1/2” x 1 1/2” x 18” purpleheart turning blank to use for inlays and a couple of small ziricote cutoffs. i can’t wait. so within the next two weeks i should have a blog documenting the building process and most likely have the finished project posted in about 2 1/2 weeks. thanks for looking!
