What wood should one use for an owl picture frame? Birdseye of course!

Looks great!

Great looking frame! I’ve done a couple frames in the past and they came out well except for one thing. I was advised that epoxy would suffice as a source of joinery in the corners and the mitres came apart one two of the frames. What joinery did you use on your mitres?

I think I like this one even more . . . but it’s hard to choose. Great Frame!
