Default New project, two toned picture frame

Just finished a two tone frame for one of my wife's paintings. Not inlays, just two toned stains with brush on poly semi gloss. Lesson, mask with tape BEFORE putting on an oil based stain. Tape won't stick. The texture in the blonde inset is well defined despite the fact the stain was quite light. The diagonal edges are all endgrain, so they soaked up the stain and turned darker. BTW, it IS square, just shot from a slight angle.

Very nice Tom. No one would ever think about it being out of square when you build it.

Very nice design Tom.

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.

A beautiful job Tom. Very nice.
