Afromosia Diploma Frames

Pictured: Proof I'm a Warrior
Well I went a fancy school for some book-learnin' and purchased from them not one, but two, fancy sheepskin documents with gold-coloreds seal and autopen signatures on 'em. One even has Latin on it (I guess both do if you count "juris"). I figured if I had fancy diplomas that they needed fancy frames.

Spalted Maple Knife Strip 2.0

This isn't the first knife stip rodeo, but it does warrant a new post as it is a recent commission that I received. For the sake of the new buyer, I wanted to do a special post for their new knife strip and detail a little about the material and to say a few things about caring for the material.

Ash Double Frame

It's heavier than it looks
I've been doing a lot with frames of late, and am not done yet. This bad boy has a few unique attributes that I either haven't done before, or haven't done the same way before. Details after the jump...

Miter Joints

In a stunning development, the lead picture for a post on miter joints is of a miter joint!
If two pieces of wood come together, they form a joint. There are a lot of different joints. One that is pretty common (Look at almost any picture frame. Are you looking at one? Good. Odds are you're looking at a frame chock full of (probably 4) miter joints) is a miter joint.

"Oh my will he end the suspense and talk about the miter joints already."

Sure. Since you asked nicely.
