    Fantastic Glenn. Real nice work and great idea to make. The mix of wood sets it off beautifully.

    You sure are churning them out.

    That is one pretty frame. I'm sure it is one of a kind and will be appreciated for a long time.

    The glass came out of a frame from the 99cent store as the whole frame was cheaper than I could get the glass alone. By backer I think you mean the little goodies that hold the back cover on(?). I got those on clearance at Rockler. My local store has inventory clearance sales a couple times a year. I think it was a pack of 8 for a buck (?) so I grabbed a few. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?p...icture%20frame

    The stop at the top of the frame is machined out of walnut, then a short section of brass all-thread is epoxied in and the brass washer and knurled through-knob came from Lowes.
