  • First frame

    Given the HIGH cost of having pieces framed, I thought I'd build my own. Curly maple with bubinga frame, total size is 12 1/2 X 12 1/2. Maple finished with Danish oil, frame finished with one coat danish oil, two coast MinWax glass varnish. Comments/critiques, positive or negative, welcome.

      Very nice work!

      Very nice work!
      I would have put a darker bakground to enhance the work AND the frame evenn more. Backgroung is so similar to the frame that the frame go unnoticed.

      My opinion, No prejudice. Keep-up the good work!

          Very nicely done.I have made frames for some of my cuttings, one set were barn board for the wolf drinking water and maple for an eagle cutout.The wolf was black background and the eagle was red. Can`t post pictures as our old computer runs so slow with the digital program installed I read yesterdays messages today

            I like the frame and the finish.
            I will stand and not so much disagree with the others but I can see the merits of using a background and a frame of similar colours.

            There are times when subtle can say more than stark.
            I wish I could make frames like that!

              Thanks for the comments folks. FWIW, I debated a dark vs red background for quite a while. Then went the subtle route to highlight the ram.

              And Carl, if I can make a frame, you can make a frame. The most time consuming part was changing the router bits...... About 45 minutes total, including tablesaw work, router work, sanding, glue-up and finishing. Of course I waited overnight for the glue to dry and didn't count that as "time"!!.......

                It's a good frame . Getting those mitered corners to join can be tricky, so congratulations on getting the accuracy.

                  Very nice

                  Well done, bearfretworks

                  Danish oil and MinWax glass varnish? I'm looking for a gloss finish like that. I will defiantly try those. I do make frames and this one looks great. Keep up the good work.

                    He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

                    Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                    It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
