Having shamelessly copied Darrell Peart’s beautiful Seattle Mirror, I submit for your perusal my Hickory and Walnut version scaled down to serve as a picture frame. Finish is beeswax, mineral spirits, and Seafin Teak oil.

Awesome Jerry!

That is a lot of routing hickory without any big chunks missing 8^)

Ebony is fun to work with?

Thanks Andrek!, The hickory was difficult to work with, it has three unfortunate qualities, it’s as hard as iron, it tends to crumble unless tools are razor sharp, and if the tree grew in a cow or horse pasture, it becomes painfully evident in the smell when you are working it. Beyond that, the finished product is always beautiful.

Thanks a bunch! I know I put “router” in the keywords list, but I actually did not use one on this project, I created my template in Sketchup for the cloud lift, then I printed it out, glued it to the wood, and cut the shape out on the band saw after making a huge number of relief cuts first. Then I removed the paper template and filed first, then sanded to get a nice smooth contour.

Thanks Andre! Yeah, I got enamored with making something, ANYTHING in thr G&G style after purchasing Darrell’s books. I thought the frame would be a relatively easy place to start. WRONG! Nothing easy about this style. Anyway, in this case, the cart came before the horse, so to speak, so the wife is still doing her preliminary pre- painting research for the picture that will eventually go in this frame. I’m hoping for a painting of some black tailed deer we took pictures of a few weeks ago, they were almost in our back yard!

Ebony…well, I’d have to drive 200 miles round trip to get some..Don’t think I wasn’t tempted, but I settled for walnut plugs this time.. Don’t worry, the next one I do will be “right” ;-)

I think the frame turned out great Jerry. Nice job, especially with the hickory.

Excellent work as usual…...........you have a photo/art work already planned for it?

No router, even more impressive.

I knew of the first two hickory characteristics you mentioned – but never the third….

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for looking, and for your nice words. My wife is a pretty good artist, here’s one of her paintings,

She said she’s going to do an Elk for the G&G frame.
Hickory, yes, sure am glad I had a face mask for this batch…

“pretty good” quite an understatement…...when the elk painting is done please share a pic of it in your frame.
