Picture frame with feet

Was working on some frames and decided to try adding feet to one of them so I could have it sit nicely rather than hang on the wall.

Thanks to corelz125 I have a “new to me” block plane that I used to chamfer the edges (thank you!)

I may be hooked on hand planing. Played around with it for a while after I finished up with the frame.

Stained the oak with onyx General Finishes, then one coat of High Performance mixed with stain, and then two coats of High Performance semi gloss.

Neat… and as my grand-pappy used to say… Same dog, different legs!

Great looking dogs. The frame is almost as good. Nice work.

Thanks LittleBlackDuck.

Thanks 987Ron – our dogs always are the stars of the show around our household!! Plenty of pictures so easy to fill any frame I build.

Nice! Do you need to get some moulding planes next so you can make different profiles? ;-)

Haha…good question. Now I’ll have to go Google “moulding planes” ;)

Thanks – I like little projects like this that use up some small cutoffs and are fun to design.

Thanks. We have too many wall hanging frames so decided to try a new option. Turned out pretty stable and looks good on a side stand in our kitchen (along with other dog pictures, of course).

Nice idea BB!

I went several iterations trying to figure out a good table top frame design, mostly ended up too complicated. You have a nice solution!

Love the shepherds!

Our rescue dog, though being a genetic stir-fry, looks (and acts) a lot like a shepherd, pushing 90 pounds now!

Splintergroup – thanks, sat looking at the frame and scraps of wood before I (along with some input from my husband), came up with this. Glue on endgrain was a consideration but seems sturdy enough. Your pup is a cutie and 90 pounds, well, that’s a big dog! Our Teddee is about 95 pounds and I realize how big see is when combing her in comparison to little Dollee who is about 60 or so pounds.
