This frame is a second frame (picture is 11×14) for our remodeled guest bathroom. I used poplar and routed the profile to match work on the mirror frame and prior small picture frame. Put a coat of gray primer and then the black paint on top allowing a bit of that primer to show through the brush strokes.

The picture is of one of our kayaking adventures on Beaver Creek in Oregon. The eagle was so amazing to see and I was happy to be able to grab a picture. A very special memory.

Thanks everyone. :)
One of the things I love about woodworking is adding little items to our home that are “custom.” Buying a frame wouldn’t have been nearly as fun as working to match the profile of the mirror and picture frame already in that bathroom. Silly little details that I now notice (5 years ago, before this whole woodworking journey started, I doubt I would have seen or understood the effort).

Have your say...
