Frame No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

I haven’t posted any projects for quite a while because I haven’t been making that much and what I have made hasn’t been anything special. However, I am very happy with this frame so thought I would share it with the world.

The outside diameter is 26”, the wood is zebrawood (duh), the finish is 3 coats of Deft spray lacquer with paste wax and the joints were reinforced with dominoes. I rounded the hexadecagon using a router on a trammel. I kept the segments in order so the grain wraps around the frame starting at the bottom center.

The glasswork was done by a friend who is an artist and sells at local galleries. It will be interesting to see if this sells. :) Thanks for looking.

Nice work with the grain pattern and joinery.
You have talent.

(but I knew that long before you posted this project)

Nice work Art!

Wood rings are a challenge (read: PITA).

How is the zebra wood for routing (splintering, burning, etc)?

Thanks for the compliments.

Splint, the zebrawood works very well, much better than cherry, maple or oak. There was no burning, splintering or tear-out. I set the router on “2” so, maybe, 12,000 to 15,000 rpms. The router bits I used were made by Jesada which gives some indication of their age and they have never been resharpened. I made 2 or 3 passes to get to the final profile.

Thanks Art, I have some zebra wood planks itching for a project. I’ve use zebra veneer quite a bit, but I somehow think it doesn’t react to the router quite the same as the real thing. 8^)

That is one intricate pice of art.

I’d buy it for the frame alone.

You two make a great team.
