Thanks Tom. The steps were cut face side down flat on a table saw. Silver/aluminum finish was not what I was looking for. I see a oak color and natural wood color.That is a great looking frame. Did you cut those steps with a table saw with the piece on edge? I really like the silver/aluminum finish. Simple and elegant.
Steve you are right. 3/4" thick wood and the cuts just deep enough to call it a cut after sanding. If anyone is interested in the process, below is what I ended up doing.Very nice frame indeed. I was wondering the process and saw that each side was a solid 1 piece so I figured it was cut on the table saw. Still those steps can't be very deep as it looks to be about .75" overall thickness. Interesting frame indeed.
