I built this picture frame out of some walnut I had on my lumber rack. I drew up the plan in CAD and plotted it out full size (nearly 24”x24”). I tried to coordinate the grain patterns to minimize seeing glue lines and waste. This was the first project that I used an old Stanley plane from my grandfather to flatten the glue up and the time I spent sharpening that old blade was well worth it! Nice smooth shavings! After some work on the scroll saw I hit the picture openings with a rasp for fine tuning. I beveled all the edges with a 45 degree bit in my router and cleaned up the corners with my chisels.

A little bit of dark walnut danish oil and that’s a wrap! She loved it and I am very happy with how it turned out.
