Special frame for a special picture of a special customer’s special car. I might have gone a little overboard on this one. BMW sent him an artist’s rendering of the car that was made while it was still a glimmer in the designer’s eye. Curly maple and cherry. I can’t believe the mat stayed together throughout the finishing…it was only 1/16” thick!

That’s one spectacular frame! Actually, I’m far more impressed with the frame than the picture. Give me the real car and the choice might be different! LOL

Well—that’s “special.” ;-) Very nicely done!

Sweat job. If you don’t mind me asking, did you dye the maple?
