Project Information

Like nearly all kids today, my children are seemingly involved in an endless list of activities. Basketball, softball, swimming, band, track, ...............

Nearly all of the local organizations use the same photographer for their team photo packages. These packs come with an inexpensive universal cardboard display frame. The stock frame is ok, but I had to make something a little nicer. Something that matches all of the woodwork in the house that I have made. So to add a little "panache", I made a frame for each of my girls to display their current sport team and individual photo.

Each time they bring home a new phot pack, it is a simple task to swap the pics into the frame.

Softball is a highlight of our families activities. I saw some sports specific frames at an art store a while back, and decided that I could also make the "SOFTBALL" frame to match.

The hinged easles are a nice and simple way to display the girls pictures on the fireplace mantle.

The red oak is fnished with a golden pecan stain and several coats of "Arm-R-Seal" they are very durable. Simple but very visible projects for our home.

Thanks for letting me share.
