Wednesday Woodworking – Framed

Finally got this project done: The Redwood Picture frame with Heather’s painting of redwoods!

Heather’s oil painting in my frame. Size: 30×18

Heather did a great painting and if you think this is good, it’s one of a set of three that she’s working on.

The frame is made from redwood scraps left over from building a planter box.  I milled the wood down and used my picture framing jig to cut the corners.  The frame is finished with a coat of wipe-on varnish.

The idea was to have the frame look like a tree so I used the pieces with knots and defects.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

    That is a beautiful atmospheric painting. The redwoods have a very majestic look and the frame is a perfect compliment.

  4. Both are beautiful. Love the idea of using the defects for the authentic, cannibalistic feel. 😉

    I lived among the redwoods for 14 years, so your piece prompted nostalgia, Andrew.

  17. What to say here that would express my feeling about this? It is a beautiful painting, and a more perfect frame for it could not have been found. Gorgeous on both counts. Applause for both artists in residence. 🙂
