    That's cool Alex! Thanks for all the pictures, but especially the one showing how things are glued up.

    Those are very nice, Alex. Just by blind luck, I made a frame for a wooden sign with a fluted profile very similar to the fifth picture from the top. Mine's only a single type of wood, and not nearly as attractive, but the profile is cool. (And like yours, it highlights the accuracy of the miter joints, too.)

    Hi Alex ,
    Nicely done, both the frames (I always favor the large bold frames) and the framed. When working in a framing shop in the 70's I was told the frame sells the piece (in most cases). Very good looking, nice proportions too on the frame size and the mirror hole, but then I'll bet you knew that.
