  1. Projects OVAL FRAMES

    Oval frames made of ayous, 40x32cm, 25x20mm profile. First I made plywood template, shape transfered to glued ayous boards. I cut middle with jigsaw, outside with bandsaw, than make final shape with flush trim router bit. With other two bits I made groove and rounded edges. No finish. They will...
  2. Spalted Alder Mirror Frame

    This is the last of 5 frames I'm building for my friends. I used spalted alder that I had milled from the same friends wood lot. Essentially I let the logs lay through two winters and cut them in the third summer - kind of a formula that I've worked out for the local Climate - this generally...
  3. Birdseye maple picture frames

    I bought these watercolors of the 4 Seasons during a business trip to Shanghai a couple of years ago. They aren't expensive fine art, but I thought they would be worthy enough of some proper frames. Wife got them professionally mounted on foam core, then I took over. The wood is birdseye...
  4. Tile Display

    This frame was an anniversary gift to my son Ben and his wife Jenna. I was looking for a project to try out some of the joinery and details often seen in early Arts and Crafts pieces, especially from the Greene and Greene brothers. These "tiles" are actually color prints of tiles that I found...
  5. Arts & Crafts Poster Frame

    We went to the Port Townsend, WA Wooden Boat Festival last year for my birthday. My girlfriend bought this poster with the understanding that I'd make a frame for it. I finally got around to it. Here's what I came up with, thanks to Dan's inspiration. I chickened out on the fancy scrollwork...
  6. Arts & Crafts Framing Samples

    My girlfriend went to Framer's Workshop in Berkeley to get some glass for the poster frame I recently made her, and she came back with the glass and a job offer. Kirstie, the owner, needs a local woodworker to make customer frames. She asked me to make up some samples, so I ran home and...
  7. Some frames in a slide show

    These are frames that I am selling or made for samples. Enjoy. I wanted to thank the LJ's who replied to my questions about Tung Oil. Unless otherwise mentioned, the frames have a Maloof finish (TO, BLO, & Urethane). Slide show http://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/7594441 View more...
  8. picture frames

    My fiance at the time wanted some picture frames to display pictures at our reception after our wedding. Her mother and her found some at a local store that they really liked but cost $150 bucks a piece. So i said i could make them i just needed a miter saw and i would do it. So, I got a saw...
  9. Faith Art: New Frames for the Stations of the Cross at Marion's St. Mark Catholic Church

    Photo 1: Chasing After the Wind: Whew. What a morning. It is windy a lot of the time in Kansas, and out on the open prairie where I live, it is almost always windy. But, when the weather forecast is for "windy", you know it is going to be terrible, and it is today. "Blustery," they call it...
  10. Oriental Frames

    We purchased these watercolours in China in 2012, but in a lull between paying jobs, I finally got around to framing them for my wife for Christmas. I toyed around with curving/arching the top cross-member, but in the end decided the I liked the simplicity of keeping it straight. That also...
  11. John Hall Frames

    I think I'm the third lumberjock who has posted these. The WoodWhisperer has extensive information on making these. They are a great way to learn hand tools. I made 4 of them for Christmas presents. I had originally intended to keep the last one for our house, but realized I forgot about the...
  12. screen frames for screened in porch

    I made the frames for my new screened in porch. The only thing that makes the Pontiac region of Quebec habitable in black fly season :-) I used white cedar and pegged half lap joints had to make seven of them all 3'x4' or bigger. The groove for the spline was made with a trim router and a 1/8"...
  13. Arts and Crafts Motto Frames

    These are some frames and motto art I made for my wife's birthday. Some include the popular Dard Hunter rose motif. Dard was a famous Roycroft print designer. The longer text is a beautiful quote from Elbert Hubbard's 1906 book White Hyacinths. The book was written over a hundred years ago...
  14. Arts and Crafts Frames and Font

    Here are my arts and crafts frames with Roycroft style font and designs. Some are decoration for my healthcare practice, and some are Christmas gifts. Stains range from chestnut Rodda thinned 50%, cherry Minwax, to dark walnut Varathane. Cheers!
  15. Kumiko Wall Art

    Wouldn't woodworking be much easier if we all had shops filled with only the latest and greatest high end machines of our dreams? Unfortunately, this is almost never the case. This hobby is usually filled with many hardware limitations, but it's our job to work around them and make due with what...
  16. Reclaimed timber picture frames

    Here are some picture frames made from reclaimed and scrap stock. I wanted to make 2 frames to house my son's self portrait lino prints. So I got to work on some smaller frames from cut-offs - all keyed mitres. The darker wood came up beautifully after a 'mahogony' stain and some Linseed Oil...
  17. Picture Frames From Recycled Fencing

    These were for a client, made entirely of a cedar rail from a simple split rail fence and several very weathered pine boards from a discarded picket fence.
  18. Three layer 5"x7" picture frames

    Following a trend lately, I've been "raiding" my wife's stash of project supplies that have sat dormant for some time. The latest score was literally 100's of mattes with backers, all 5×7. That settled it, I needed to make some frames post-haste. I always wanted to try some layered frames that...
  19. Handmade Christmas 2- Signs and Frames

    Continuing with the Handmade Christmas theme here is a section of signs and frames (clip style) that are going out soon. the stenciled sign i built the pallet out of more scrap I had around the shop then my DW took over from there. Love it when we can work together on a project. The frames I...
  20. More Framing Samples

    So, Kirstie at Framer's Workshop asked me to make some 3/4" frame samples for smaller prints. I made the large one out of walnut, with a tung oil finish, the next one is TransTint Golden Brown, then Minwax Classic Oak, TransTing Dark Mission Brown, and the bridle joint is another tung oil. I...
