Default New painting, new frame

Hi, my wife produced a new painting so I have done a frame of Cherry to show it off. Didn't realize how hard (and expensive) that stuff is. Two coats of cherry stain after very careful sanding to 220, then a brushed on coat of wipe on poly, lite 320 sanding, rubdown and final poly coat. Turned out nice. I found that the cherry has a bit of figuring. I like the precision of frames.

Ditto that! I especially like the little carving at the bottom center of the frame. How did you do that?

I used to watch Bob Ross and wish I had the self discipline to learn the process of landscaping like that. Your wife made a great piece there.

Jim, I think that carving is a picture frame easel. Tom, great job on the frame, I was in the business for 20 years and that is one of the nicest frames I have seen.
