First Handmade Floater Frame
Hiya, just recently finished making my first floater frame for one of my old paintings!
Here are the pics...

(More info about this painting can be found here)
|Back of the frame,..|
To be added - a dust cover and some fixtures for hanging..
|I love linseed oil finished raw wood for its golden glow which grows ever richer with age..|
It also gives excellent protection, drying hard and resisting moisture...
A simple floater frame is really relatively easy to construct and I much prefer the linseed oil finish and overall end product than one I could get from any ol' frame shop.
So from now on, (since I just got a proper mitre box that makes 45degree angle cuts a synch!)... whenever possible, I'll be making my own frames.... :)
