Well I am more of a crafter than any kind of professional wood worker, but I think I may have one thing to offer, at least to many of you. I wanted to do it here, but to set it up the way I want to I needed to do it on my web site.
I frame my own art that I compete with, and I have had coments on many of my judges sheets about my framing, probably because it is so unique. It has been one of those things that I started years ago, and have made 1000 mistakes and bad frames to get to the ones I do now. But they are simple and don’t require a lot of fancy equipment. A router table helps, but isn’t required. I even had a judge at the state fair this year order a frame from me. Although I don’t want to get into the business of selling frames, which is why I don’t mind telling everyone how I do them. I will work on improving the pictures, but let me know what you think.
If you are curious, I took first place in all three catigories I entered. Original Pyrography, Mixed media wall art, and original wood carving. I am a much better “wood burner” than I am a wood worker, lol. will take you right to the article. I really do hope it is helpful to some of you, even if it is just for one of my little tricks. Most of it you all already know, but I wanted to make it simple enough that even I could follow it.
