    G&G Frame for Mom

    I posted the initial parts build for a couple of these a while back. I finally got some other stuff out of the way and got around to assembling one. Good thing too as I'm going to visit mom and dad today and this one is for her.

    Thanks guys. I hope she'll see the humor in the picture, She is on the verge of letting out a big laugh. Hard to believe she's 86 already . . . why that would make me . .. oh, never mind.

    Really nice Glenn. I really like the fretwork and the nails add the special touch.
