Three quartersawn white oak frames. Mortise and tenon construction. Pegged.

Three variations of the same stoneware tile.

Photos one and two professional painted by my wife Peggy’s sister, Susan Hamilton , artist, Seattle, WA.

Photo three is in the bronze acid patina finish created in my shop.

Finish on frames is water anyline dye (dark oak), Minwax red mahogany stain, Seedlac and wax.

This is my most fluid of frame designs … like a splash of quartersawn white oak
Carved the mahogany master for the landscape tile based on a pen and ink drawing given to me by world renowned author, artist, illustrator and sculptor,Bill Nelson.

That’s a perfect frame for that print. It doesn’t detract from the beauty of the print only enhances. Very nice.

I made four frames like this one a couple weekends ago. I bought the board from a lumber yard that is only open part time. It is in a rural area about 30 miles from my house. Board was priced seperately from the average qrt sawn white oak. It was $8.50 a bft because of spectacular ray flake figure. .... link... to the lumber seller. He runs the small lumber yard at his farm and works full time at a local highschool as the industrial arts instructor. He also carries some really nice curly maple if you look at his high-priced stash.

Very nice frames. I really like the bronze acid patina finish. Are you going to market these on eBay as in the past?
