so this was suppose to be an easy frame, that ive needed for around 6 years now, and finally thought of building. originally it was suppose to be just the barnwood, no purple heart and no cherry around it, but whie it was built the walnut inlay needless to say wasnt centered at the measurement i needed and the frame came out to small for the needs of the picture… so introducing purple heart which i love and added something great to the frame, needless to say we didnt see that the board had a crack in it until it was cracking under clamp pressure, and or a pressue of an arm resting on it. so with the weak purple heart.. we added the cherry.. and tadah!!.. i actually love how the errors of the way came to what was produced!! somedays you have to love the path wood has you follow!!

Sometimes you wonder who is in charge in the shop, the wood, or the woodworker… Nice results for a project that had so many “bumps” in the road…
