This is a picture frame that I made a while back. I got the 8th Grade Tech Arts award. I don’t actually know what kind of wood it is, just something that my grandpa got from the cabinet shop near his house. It took he a while to finish it because I never really got time to make it. It was a simple frame and I didn’t even bother with splines. I figured it was small enough to not need them. I had to cut the glass inside because it was a non standard size. That was a adventure!!! The glass cutter that I used was kind of old and it didn’t work to great, but it got done.

Nice tight miters, Tyler.

Glass cutting is an art of its’ own. When you watch the pros do it, it will amaze you.

We just have this little scoring thing that does it and then you break the peice off but the peice left it rough but that didn’t matter since it would be covered by the rabbit.

Congratulations on your award Tyler! I am new to woodworking and a frame might be a good place to start since I am a photographer.

It sure looks like cherry to me too. I think it came out quite nice. I’m planning to make a few frames of my own soon. Any advice on scoring the glass? I’ve heard the trick is to only make the score line once (no retracing). It will be a learning experience.

Also, those mitres look nice and tight. Good work.

the colouring really goes well with the colour of the diploma – becomes “1” piece rather than a framed piece.

Thanks Debbie.

I also was thinking it was cherry but I didn’t know for sure, Hokie Mojo
