I made this from pallet wood as well, and bought a piece of 1” poplar dial which I used to “pin” it together with. I gently routed the top and bottom piece with a cove bit real shallow. Photography is the whole reason I began to mess with wood, and WAS my first hobby. Now I cant get out of my makeshift woodshop to take pictures! All I want to do is make sawdust.

Welcome to LJ’s

The dowels give it a nice touch. Good job on frame. Good to salvage the wood.

Hey man, cool frame and pano. I’ve been into photography for a while and just recently got a pano head for my tripod. I love that format, you’re not restricted by the size of the lens and the images can be much more inclusive and engaging. The wide sweeping grain on the rails of your frame work great with the elongated format of the photo.
