An Old-Timey Frame

A few years back we drug home some old lumber from a mill originallly built where our family cabin is in WY.  The mill was there back in the early 1900's.

We since milled the refuse lumber into smaller pieces for projects.

Its been rainy lately, so we whipped up a 'barn-wood' frame.

We don't have a joiner or the right tools, but a simple mitre-box hand-saw and some large staples... and here is a frame!

The clamp and chain are holding it together while the glue dries.

With the glue dry we router'ed the inside of the frame.  It gives a nice texture and color to it.

Here is where we router'ed the backside, for fiting in the photo, glass, and backing.

It is pretty rough, but very appealing in a pioneer, "splinter-in-the-finger" kind of way.
