    G&G Styled Frame

    Built to fit the original wedding invitation and a picture of the happy couple. I dug through the scrap bin which is always a great source for small parts. Getting the right sized pieces in matching characteristics is sometimes not so easy.

    The parts are farther along than the pictures represent; the template routing came last before the dry fit . . . Resaw and mill the parts. A bit of figured walnut here for the detail pieces.

    Some scrap ply for a template. I use the Mortise Pal as usual for this type of joint.

    Template route the upper and lower rails and use the tenoning jig for the slots to receive the details.

    I have to run off to a BBQ but I will try to get the details shaped and get 'er into the clamps by tomorrow evening.

    Hey Glenn, after all these G&G projects you may apply for a conservator job at the Gamble house, I'm sure that you'd do it far better than the "so-so" jobs we saw when visiting it during the tour.

    Making a G&G style picture frame is another thing on my " to do " list, but I can't understand why it keeps growing and growing I believe it has something to do with the speed I add things up and the sloweness I make projects.

    Pretty frames Glenn, I look forward to see them finished
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Beautiful job as usual Glenn

    I really like the way the tenon in the center piece extends through the slots. Was this an afterthought because your drawing doesn't show it ???

    That's outstanding Glenn! The walnut is beautiful. That curly is something else. I used to not care for walnut, but the more I use it the more I like it. The subtle hues in the wood is something else.
