« Part 3: Mirror Frame #3 Part 4 of Commisions series Part 5: Mirror Frame #5 »

Well I’m nearing the end now, i’ve got a lot done in the last two days. not a whole lot physically but the details are really coming along good. i’ll get right into it.

first i needed to cut a v groove at the intersection of the tongue and groove. i started by cutting a groove in the intersection area. then i chiseled away the waste to get a rough groove and finished it up with some sandpaper

Then after that was done i put in the ebony peg. i will go more into that on an episode of the teen age woodworker that i want to have with simple inlays and accents you can do with very little tools.

now just a picture on me with the biggest frame so you get the jist of how it is going

So last after the pegs are in and the sanding is done i just need about 2 or 3 coats of danish oil and about 3 or 4 more coats of Arm-r-seal. thanks for reading my blog and i look forward to any comments or suggestions.

thanks jtdyal, i just started finishing them and i have got to say that they are amazing. i took some pictures of the process and even though i have a 6 mega pixel camera the pictures put the actually finish to shame. its just so amazing.

try and take your pictures early in the morning, or late afternoon. Natural lighting is an elusive necessity. I know very little in regards to photography but perhaps this would be a wonderful blog for those who would like share.
