I have meant to add this to the forum for some time now and always seem to forget. Most folks prefer a video, but since I am unable to film myself, I had to do stills and add text. I tried to group the pics side by side, but got tired of trying to get them to look right.

Here you can see that I have notched the corner and glued the accent piece in place. This frame is made with spalted sycamore.

I started out with nothing...and I still have most of it left.
I have a few pics posted here.

Great tutorial, Joe. You have inspired me to try to make bases for some of my pieces, and I may even try a frame or two.
Last time I counted, I had 17 different kinds of saws, but I never had a router until just now.
Everything is very clear in your instructions, but how did you light the finished piece in the last picture?

Thank you.

I used led lights that I got from a fella who used to be a member here. http://jecoglass.com/ Reasonable prices and quick service.

Joe,

Really great write up. I followed the link in your signature, which you need to double check as there were some extra www/http stuff in, and am blown away by the foil work. I have never seen that before and you had a few, especially the Dolphin fish that just floored me. I will be looking into this technique as a fisherman and photographer. Really it is one of the nicest ways I have ever seen to interpret a fish.

Just WOW.

Best regards,
Scott

The wood is stunning as well as your completed project. I love your corners, carving and the lighting looks great.

I never followed the procedure because I do picture framing.

It was so kind of you to share that with all of us, thank you.

I'm interested to check out your website, Scott's comments were very positive, I just can't follow your link, it gives me an error. Would you mind giving me your website address please.

Cheers

Michele

Thank you so much for the kind words. It means a lot. I think that I have two painting / leafing projects that stink for every one that turns out good. I just break out the acetone and start over when they don't turn out right.

My website for my pics is: Here is a link to my pictures.
