Framed 3 inch antique Grueby tile

MAKORE frame with qtr sawn oak lattice work

Frame and lattice design are my own making although Frank Lloyd Wright inspired.

Finish is alcohol anilyne dark golden dye and a minwax mahogany oil stain, darkened with a little ebony oil stain. Splash of Japanese dryer. Seedlac shellac French polish and dark paste wax.

Another great piece. Do you plan out the frames or just create?

Very nice work, as always of course. You always present such as unique and interesting design with your pieces. As a non-artisan I admire your sense of proportion. balance and design. Your woodworking is pretty good as well.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Dan;

When are you going to admit you lay awake at night, thinking up these frames?

The first step is admitting you have a problem. LOL

Nice frame and tile!
