Carrie, We had a perfect use for this file posted 5 years ago! Thanks for sharing the file. We made some modifications and came up with this! I converted it to a double-sided piece, and if anyone would like it, I'll be happy to share.

Cutting and finishing by Marty, painting by Erica. What a team!

Thanks,
Andy

Nice looking frames! One issue with frames made from a piece of hardwood, they can be very fragile... the 'skinny' edge of your frame can easily warp and/or crack. I found a method that makes those edges pretty stable. I make a fat 'popsicle' stick that runs the direction of the grain (I usually cut it from the center of the frame that will be cut out. Then I make a female pocket across the grain that the stick will fit in. I glue it in and mill it off after it dries.

llwood,
Would appreciate you sharing your 2 sided file if the offer is still open, my neighbor just had a baby and this would be a perfect gift.

What might be useful is to list the fonts used. When I have projects I will document what font I used in the notes section so the next time I open it after a brief year to three I know which one it was. Also when sharing files it would be useful when the next person doesn't have the font in their system. Don't have to guess or search to find it.
