Project Information

Originally, I'd planned on making a veneered box after reading, "A Box That Earns Its Stripes" Fine Woodworking #207. After seeing how incredibly complex it would be, I lost steam and aborted the mission! I ended up making 16 4" x 6" frames with the veneered strips that I'd cut. I've enjoyed giving them away and don't regret my decision at all.

The woods used are Mahogany, Wenge, Yellowheart, Bloodwood and Holly, in a symmetrical pattern. The striped veneer is glued to a 3/4" Baltic birch substrate with Mahogany veneer on the back. They are finished with tung oil and a coat of wax.

Great looking frames! Like the colors of all the wood it mixes well.

Nice looking frames. And I believe you've simplified the spline jig down to its most basic form, I like that.

Changing directions in mid project can result in some very interesting and original ideas. These turned out great!
