My Future Hubby's Hobby

Paul is a custom home builder and does a lot of different types of construction at work, but in his spare time, he does also have a woodworking hobby. Since there is so much of the wedding decoration that is quilting related, I suggested that he do some picture frames for gifts and for our pictures. This frame (sitting on the four wheeler - sorry I couldn't find anywhere else to sit it) is for our wedding picture. It's a walnet frame with Oak trim on top and will hold a 11X14 picture of us after the wedding for hanging in our home.
This is a picture frame out of cedar. He made one for our picture of Jim & Adele's wedding picture. Then he made them for my brothers to have our wedding picture in. He also made oak frames for our parents and grandparents. They have turned out really nicely.

What a lovely frame for your wedding picture, and such nice gifts too. Beautiful design for the walnut and oak one - I like the inside edge curves around the corners. Don't have any idea how he does that but it certainly is lovely.

The frames are beautiful. He does a wonderful job. He needs to set up a blog and show off his work and then tell us how he made them.
