These tile frames were made for a friend. Quarter sawn oak. Fairly simple but the fun was making the frames so that the tile can be easily removed but still show the entire tile from the front.

Very nice. Where did you get the tiles, who made them? Great looking.

Diamondback, these are nice tile displays. I enjoy this style and QSWO is a nice wood to work with. You have some nice designs on these frames and my personal favorite would be your leading picture. Nice photography as well.

How did you finish these?

The tiles are from an artist in Viola, Wisconsin by the name of Pook Ness at Elk Hollow Pottery. The stain is Provincial Oak, Minwax, and the finish is Poly/Oil (Sam Maloof).

My favorite is also the first one.

Lovely work. I’ll vote for the triptych with the trilliums.
