Continuing my work with pallet wood like my last project, this time I found some of the pallets were oak. So, I decided to build something a little nicer with the oak. Looking through the April/May issue of Woodcraft magazine, (VOL.10/NO.58), I found these great looking 5×7 picture frames in an article by Marlen Kemmet. After I ran the boards through the planer I was able to make these 2 picture frames. I really like the walnut buttons. I think these will make great Christmas gifts.
