Just kidding. I'm humbled to have a srdzevon on my wall. Thanks, man.

Ha! It was well on it's way when I started taking from it. I don't think I made it much worse. The old man that owns it called me and told me he caught some kids playing around in it so he took his tractor and barely touched it with the bucket and the whole thing came down. Glad no one was in it when it did.

Blowing my mind again. I just wish I had the foresight to see the diamond in the rough that you do! That top one looks like I'd put it out on the curb on a Friday.

Jon asked me a while back to build him a Nesting frame like mine, but when I found that blue wood I had a better idea.

The outside came from an old barn I've had the privilege of stealing from for the past few years. I think it fell the other day so hopefully salvaging will be less sketchy now. The inner frame came from an old house that was being torn down. It's nasty looking and full of old rusty nails. Just like I like it.
Srdzevon, just wow man. I am jealous as hell of those tight miters. I built a miter jig for my table saw and it's cuts are either perfect or horrible (either way, extremely inconsistent). Only thing I can think of is that the bottom runners are too loose and I'm getting wiggle on blade contact.

Goodwill has been a goldmine for me recently. Have picked up at least 3 frames with museum glass. I recently scored this HUGE frame with museum glass for $10:

Took the frame apart filled some holes with wood filler. Sanded and painted. Reinforced the back with L brackets since the thing is so big. Didn't trust the V nails alone to do the job. Ordered some mattes from Hobby Lobby. Threw it all together this afternoon:

Very happy with how it turned out.

Very nice alter! I'm hitting mine up in the morning and keeping an open mind. How did you ID it as Museum Glass? Sticker on the back?

Can't really say how to identify other than it looks different. You can tell from the right angle. If you can go to Hobby Lobby and look at their comparison display that will give you an idea. Then, once you see it you will know it.

Oddly when I'm searching at Goodwill most of the cross-stitch stuff is behind museum glass. Weird.

Hey all, this is my first re-claimed frame up. I'll start with the framed I had purchased from a resale art supply and home shop for $3.75.

And with that, I began doing some repairs and touching up on it. The frame itself was a little lose and not all that stable. First thing I did was take it apart, sanded it down, then put it back together with wood glue and nails. Then I spray painted primer on it, then finally a couple of coats of Montana White (that is the brand name, not color) red black (is the actual color of the spray paint, confusing!). Not sure if it an attribute of this type of spray paint brand, but there is a slight specking texture to the paint (you can kinda see it in the pictures below). Really cool to feel and look at.

Bought glazing at Hobby Lobby using trusted %40 coupon, mat board from Aaron Brothers down the street using trusted %50 coupon, and some backing board I had laying around.

And here is what I ended up with.

Tools:
Wolfcraft 3415405 Right Angle Clamp
Logan Dual Point Driver Elite
Logan Compact Classic Mat Cutter

Materials:
Montana White Red Black spray paint
Primer spray paint
Hobby Lobby UV Glass cut by guy who did not look like he wanted to be there
Aaron Brothers probably not acid free but was told was acid free mat board
nails
wood glue
wood filler
time

Looking forward to the next project!
