I enjoy making frames – the challenge of the miters along with the ability to complete in a shorter time span (compared to big furniture type projects) is nice. Plus frames make nice gifts. First three were for here at home. Last couple are for others. All are walnut. They all have keyhole slots for hanging.

Well, except for the small one where I used some corners to make a stand (miters were beyond a challenge so glue helped to fill in the gaps)

Edit: one more – this one is from hickory

Thanks. Funny that frame was one I tried getting the miters tight over and over. Finally gave up on perfect as the small pieces were getting too small to handle safely and just glued it up. Seems pretty solid. Given the issues decided to keep it, plus liked the color variation in the walnut.

Great show frames BB!

I like how you have started “whipping them out”, shows you have the process mastered. I really like how you cut the keyhole, nice and clean.

Thanks!
Yes, I have started to do in little groups. Tried changing up the order and not sure I like doing the profiles before the miters. I like to play with the arrangement of the pieces for best color/grain and seems like that is more difficult for me prior to having the length and miters done.
