I built this frame over the weekend for a good friend. The frame is made from reclaimed/hand planed oak barn wood. The grain and texture of this is fantastic. Assembled with mitered corners and rabbeted back for the glass/certificate. I hand cut the backing and installed using the Logan point driver. Looks good displaying his certification on the office wall.
Lesson learned: Make sure to leave a little “play” in the sizing of the rabbet cuts so the glass has a little room to wiggle.
