Two Cherries Picture Frame

Made from American Cherry and Brazilian Cherry. It was inspired from the picture frame at The Wood Whisperer’s website, so thanks to Marc. One difference is that I used a lighter wood on the outside edges for accents, and a darker wood for the main part of the frame. I made a few whoopsies that an untried eye wouldn’t spot or would think nothing of. Uneven clamping caused gaps to show in the back, but at least the miters in the front are tight. A sloppy biscuit joiner job didn’t align the miters well enough, which meant I had to sand quite a bit away to smooth out in the end. This led to accidentally sanding through a tiny part of a biscuit in one corner. If you glance it over, you would think that it was part of the grain or something. ;) I wanted to make the mat border larger, but the frame itself was limited in size due to the amount of jatoba I had on hand. Finished in Sealcoat with a few drops of dark mission brown Transtint for a little darker hue, and a coat of Briwax to polish it up. My third picture frame should turn out perfect though. (crosses fingers)

This is a nice frame that you built and combining bc along with cherry is a nice contrast. I have pictures that I have been “commissioned” to frame by my wife and this post certainly gives me some ideas.
