This 20” X 24” (picture size) frame is made of cherry, walnut and burly maple.

It’s sort of a “stacked” frame. The cherry frame, with maple and walnut inlay, is about 3/8” behind the maple overlay which has walnut and cherry inlay and medallions.

The white oak, cherry and walnut frame is for a 23” X 30” picture.

The medallions are maple and purple heart.

Finally, the cherry frame with leaves has maple and walnut inlay and maple accents. The frame stand is also maple.

The leaves are carved wood and were found by a friend in her parent’s attic in a nice flocked, hinged cardboard box with the name of a furniture company on it. She guessed it was from the 1930s. I made this frame for her to display her leaves.

There were 12 total leaves. Eight are on the frame and my friend generously let me keep four to use in my bathroom redesign, which is next on my Projects Page.

These frames were completed December, 2014.

Beautiful frames, Yonak! The leaf one is my favorite. I’d not seen one quite like it before. Thanks for sharing.

The most intricate and beautiful workmanship I’ve ever saw put into a picture frame. These will be family heirlooms for sure. They must have taken an enormous amount of time to complete but well worth it in the end..Great job

WOW! Pictures frames so beautiful they so not need pictures to be hung and admired. Awesome work.

Congratulations on some truly artistic and ingenious picture frames!
As a formerly professional picture framer, I can say most picture frames are plain and bland compared to your beautiful creations.
