    I've been Framed!

    Made this frame for the wife to put her "favorite saying" in.

    Cherry, with 'tiger' maple inlay. About 11" X 15". Finish is about ten coats of Target EM6000 waterborne lacquer, rubbed to a satin sheen.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    That is a great frame and a fantastic saying.

    The cherry and the maple look great together---Maybe they should get married.

    All jabberty jabber aside---That is a good looking frame.

    Enjoy,
