Floating in Spiced Wine

Yesterday, Saturday morning, Tammy asked me to make a “Floating Frame” for one of her 36″x 48″ x 3/4″ paintings. I made the frame so the painting would have a strong 1/8″ border to float in and would be recessed by about the same.

I bought more 8 foot lengths of the 2-1/2″ x 3/4″ primed white stock.

Then I fired up my Bonamassa Pandora station and got busy.

I ripped some of it in half for the inner frame and mounted it an inch back from the front of the frame using glue and 1-1/8′ brads.

I drilled some over-sized holes through the frame and ran some 1-1/4″ screws from the back into the frame of the canvas.
So here is Oh in its new “Spiced Wine” floating frame:

I’ll hang it tomorrow, it’s Miller time.

Ok, so it was a week later but it’s hung now.
