Default Greene and Greene picture frame

Well, this is my almost completed rendition of a Greene and Greene picture frame. It looks like it has too much of an asian flare. It still needs some ebony plugs and a strip or two of ebony at the top. It's for an 12x8 photo, with a mat around it, or, it will fit a 14x11 photo without a mat.

Very unusual shape for a frame. Needs to be just the right image to work with this design. This would be too much frame for most photographs.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I like the design and the execution is very good but Tom may be right. I'd need to see the photo in it. It might be better suited to one of those water colours that the Japanese are famous for.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That would look very cool with one of those watercolors, indeed. What are you putting in there? Needs to be something of quality to match your work.

Interesting design Frank, is it made of White Oak?

Nice looking work. It spurred me to investigate Greene and Greene style. The frame captures it. Did you use a plan? Or did you design it yourself?

Is it laying on its side or did you design it that way? Very nice work with the grain. You must have looked for that board for a while!

Very nice, but then I'm partial to things with an Oriental theme. Did you M&T the bottom rail or is it just a half-lap joint?

Here's a photo with a Chinese print/painting in it, they really go together well. I've been saving the plans for this Oriental Mirror for a few years - would love to build it as it would go with my décor, but really have nowhere to hang it.

Jack that will look great when you get the accents added. I love Green and Green but I like their Craftsman style pieces but this Asian inspired piece is nice too. Make sure to post finished pictures.

Tom thanks for the PDF. This would make a good mirror.

A photo of a train actually, it's a picture my wife really likes, but she'll probably hate the frame! Oh well, it'll work for something if she doesn't care for it with the photo she likes. It's a Christmas gift, so she knows nothing about it at this point.
