Just another frame!

While I was making the two frames for the tiles that I posted the other day, I also made this frame. It is for a silent auction that will be held at a annual fund raising Gala for the Utah Food Bank. Hopefully it will do well. It is Quarter Sawn White Oak with ebonized walnut pillowed pegs. Full mortise and tennon construction. Finish is the same as on the tile frames. The pictures are not the best, sorry for that. The print is a PAL print of Bryce Canyon. Thanks for looking….

I don’t know what to say about the finish work you do other than to say WOW ITS GREAT!!!
I need to see how you get such depth to all of your finish work.
More great wood is it from out local wood guys?
Send me a PM on the fundraiser I would like to help if there is still time!

Great looking frame. It looks perfect to the period and it has that”aged” look to it. Anyone can make a great looking project but it takes a special touch to provide it a special finish. I wish I had your touch!!! Keep up the good work…. I mean GREAT work!!
