The day before Mothers day, I bought a print from a craft market.
On the way home I picked up a merbau decking board that I thought would saw down to a nice frame for the print. I’d never seen this timber before, but it was heavy, dark and a lot of pitch came out when I machined it. It reminds me a bit of walnut.
Construction was plain mitre joints cut on the table saw (I’ve really got my mitre gauge dialled in). I cut a 1/4” slot in the frame rails and glued in some plywood that formed not only the backing, but added a lot of strength to the frame.
Finished in danish oil. Print glued on using “spray glue”.
Very well received by Mum!

very nice and the tones of the wood and finish are great and fit the subject well.
