Beautiful wooden frames for artwork can be hard to come by. In this two part class, you'll make your own 8" x 8" picture frame in walnut, white oak, or ash. You will be shown how to use a table saw, router, and hand tools, as well as being being taught a variety of safety tips along the way. We'll use wooden splines to strengthen the corners and apply a danish oil finish. Our wood is harvested in North America and comes to us from local furniture studios.
All materials included, including glass, wire, and hooks to hang the finished frame.
No previous woodworking experience necessary.
Class size limited to 10 students.
