Originally, this was a throw together frame for a chalk board. I used it as a menu at a farmers market. So it has been tossed around the back of a truck. Sent flying in heavy winds, more than once. Then one slow day I started in carving. I added the fir cap, top and bottom. Then glazed it. Someday soon I’ll be painting a picture to put in it.

Nice work on that frame to save it. It is now a keeper and no longer to rid in the back of the truck!!

Cheers, Jim

Yes, Steve. Without stories we are just factory workers.

I like the carving and the proportions of the frame. Well done.
