I did it my way
A friend brought me a 12" x 12" ceramic tile with a picture of a Kookaburra and asked if I could make a frame for it. I'm sure there are as many ways to make frames as there are members, but in the hope that someone somewhere may be interested in how I went about it, I present this photo shoot.
The wood is West Australian Jarrah and I started by ripping two 40mm strips and ended by applying two liberal coats of Shellac by brush followed by two coats of low sheen spray lacquer rubbed down when hardened with dry 0000 grade wire wool which left a very smooth natural looking finish.
