Andy’s Picture Frames
Added on December 24, 2010
Location: Fargo ND
Amateur or Pro: Amateur
Finish Used: The finish on the frame is a one coat shellac and a coat of polly. Some people said it didn’t need it just because it was a picture frame but I decided to add a little protection and also sheen.
Wood Species: Walnut and Cherry
I completed these frames (five) for gifts for my family members. It was my second build in my shop so I thought it was pretty ambitious. Anyways these frames are made out of cherry and walnut and are used to contrast each other throughout the frame.
I had a little movement with the glue up so a considerable amount of sanding needed to be done. The joints were just glued butt joints. I didn’t have a biscuit cutter or anything to help with alignment.
