Simple map frame. Pine from the big box store. No miter joints – pocket screwed ends to sides. Added some trim with a reveal. Stained with General Finishes dye stain and added a little patina with Seafin teak oil. Made another for a friend.

I made one like that once, it’s difficult to get a square frame that size.
Nice job with the map selection too!

I like it.
The frame isn’t so fancy that it takes away from a cool looking map.
There are plenty of times you can go nuts with the splined miters, inlay borders, the fancy bead routered moldings and so on.
Then, sometimes it’s way better to just frame the piece and let the piece stand out.
Nice move brother.
It came out great and the finish was perfect for that project.

Thanks everyone. I needed a map to sketch out our past road trips. I found this one and liked the shaded relief. Really shows the mountains and plains well. Had the map attached to foam board at Hobby Lobby. And I stapled it to the back of the frame and hung it on the wall in my basement. Now I can see the parts of the country that we still need to visit.
