Here's my latest attempt at a frame. This isn't exactally a reclaimed frame, but it is reclaimed wood. I found this oooooold ass siding and it was just screaming at me to make something. It's got a great bevel on one side and some killer old red paint.
I ripped the board length wise like so. See the cut line there at the 3 1/2" mark? it's hard to see in this pic, but the bevel is on the right and everything on the left is just a nice flat board.
I wanted to just use the beveled half and make a traditional type frame with 45ed corners, but..... I messed up my second cut.
and the board was just long enough for the frame I wanted, so I had to come up with something else.
Here's a rough fitting of the print
I think it looks pretty sweet.
Here's a detail after assembly. This shows the beveled board pretty well and how nasty and tasty the surface of the wood is. Notice i reversed the bevel from the above pic. That seems to work better I think.
Here's the wood after staining. I like how it makes the red paint pop, but the wood is a little too dark I think. I think i'm going to try a paste wax and see how that looks. Any suggestions on getting the red brighter but keeping the wood lighter?
Well, that's it for now. Got a few other things to do before it's finished, but I will post better pics of the final frame later if you guys want to see them.
