Just a little update on the picture frame. i got the hickory today and have planned out all of my cuts. I am waiting until this weekend when i am supposed to get a table saw until i do any work. i have planned out the finish to. it looks like from my test piece the finish that got both piece the closest was Arm-R-Seal. I wanted to use a water based but i really didn’t like the look so oil is the way to go. hoping to have the table saw tuned up and a router table build onto it by next Tuesday so i can start the project. I should have the project finished by next friday. Thanks for reading and any comments will be appreciated.
