Building a crate to ship a half-dozen paintings to New York City for the World Tour of Contemporary Landscape Artists...

This is my oil of "Frozen Creek Tag Alder" in a hand made red oak floating L-frame...

painting is 11-1/2"x 12-1/2"

Nice painting Larry, it has some great depth and awesome light including the colors in the shadows.

Try a maple frame, maple's not to expensive and you can get it in the soft rather than hard and if you have a planner you can buy the 6/4 rough cut that's cheaper. How did you cut your waste, table saw or router.

I'm making some 24 x 24 for some Seascapes and they'll be made out of 6/4 popular.

How did you finish the wood. I used sandpaper, and then paste wax and buffed it.
