3 large Bubinga picture frames.

I wanted to build something special for these 3 canvas drawings. The drawings are canvas reproductions of pencil crayon drawings my late uncle had done. My aunt was nice enough to provide me with the copies and I wanted to make sure they had special frames that would be suited to the pictures.

The frames are miter corners, the finish is simple clear shellac.

Thanks, I think Bubinga is currently one of my favorite woods for visual appeal, and it is nice to work with generally. as long as you aren’t hand planing it like I did. in which case you have to stop and sharpen your blades every 10 minutes :-)

Have your say...
