This was a gift that honestly got finished on Christmas day for my wife. We visited some friends for Thanksgiving on the gulf coast, and brought home a bunch of little driftwood pieces. This will be a cute reminder around the house of that wonderful trip.

My wife had this set of coasters she really liked but never used, so i built a frame for two of them.
This picture was after all the pieces were cut (to check the fit). I eventually painted the inside edges black before gluing and nailing the glass and frame together.
Today I made a little 4″ frame with a quote from a family member’s Eeyore statue. It’s funny that this little thing took a whole lot of different tools to make and caused quite the mess in the process. Table saw, router table, miter saw, sander, clamps, glue, compressor, nail gun, glass cutter… Turned out cute though. Here’s a couple less tiny frames I made for Christmas this year.
A few weeks ago I posted a map of the projection system we’re building for our new church auditorium and this last weekend I got to make a mounting frame for the array of small monitors. It started with a sketch during service, then I meticulously planned out the build (later laid out on our booth blueprints), created a frame the disassembles easily, and built some brackets to mount the monitors to. It’s actually completed, stained, and installed since we did our first successful service in the building today; I just forgot to take a final photo.
One interesting hiccup is that I tried to build this before I had the monitors in hand, and the initial plans were all off the product dimensions on Amazon. After cutting the main spine of the frame to my measurements, it became readily apparent that those dimensions were not even close for 16″ monitors. Luckily buried in the customer question someone had provided the true size and I re-did my plans to those.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Last year our family got these really cute little Snoopy valentine cards and my wife kept them to frame someday. I thought that would be a nice surprise from me, so last weekend I built this deep photo frame to give them a shadow box quality.
Originally the frame wasn’t distressed, but my wife thought it would look better that way and if the cards weren’t randomly flapping open so much, so I disassembled it and made the changes this morning.
I did this farmhouse sometime back for something, and used it again for another gift we are giving. This particular frame limited the amount of paper layers I could use, so I decided to etch some sun rays into the glass behind to house. It’s a little hard to see in the picture though.
During the cutting my Cameo’s “print and cut” registration seems to have gotten a little off, which is very unsettling. I will have to dink around with it to see what I can do to fix it.
