My wife bought me a copy of a John Bloom painting – THE POTATO PEELER, that I adore. I needed to honor the gift of my wife and the artist by attempting my first Craftsman or Greene and Greene style carpentry. Making the ebony pins is like fly tying – attention to detail and relaxing.

Perfect frame for the picture. The ebony pins are a nice, understated element that accents the print and the style.

Nice work!!

Your frame came out great and it doesn’t hurt that it goes so well with the furniture in that beautiful picture.
