Words to live by

I finished off the last picture frame of the winter over the weekend. You’re probably wondering why I’ve maid so frames, and that question has two answers. The first one is strait forward, I got tired of looking at the plain walls of my house. The second is because in my opinion miter joints are the hardest joint to get right, found in regular woodworking. My first attempts looked horrible, but after a little reading I found a method that works for me every time. To make perfect miters you need two things a miter sled, and some clamps designed for miters.

This frame holds an inspirational poster that has come to mean a lot to me.  It’s made from African Mahogany, and as with all the other frames I’ve made, it’s finished with Danish Oil and wax.
