After finishing my last project, I had plenty of cutoffs, and as I’ve done prior, I offered to make my granddaughter some painting canvases. She wanted some, but this time she asked for more than just a rectangular frame with canvas stapled on, she asked if I could make it as prior, with the addition of a place for photograph in the center, and she will paint around it.
Off to the dollar store for a 4 X 6 frame to salvage the glass, then on to the shop. I made a sticking board some years ago, so I decided to use as many molding planes as possible, and use up the cutoffs.

The center photograph portion is removeable while painting the canvas, as is the frame.

Delivered this today & she was happy with the design.

Thanks for viewing.

Looking great!

I really appreciate the way you hand profiled your moldings. Many (including me) would have limited themselves to whatever router bit they had on hand.

Nice job and very unique. It would be nice to see what your granddaughter does with the piece, maybe a picture when it’s done.
