I have seen some paintings by a few local painters here in the valley that are gallery wrapped paintings in natural finished wood frames....I know, gallery wrap pieces are not usually framed but they sure look cool floating in a wood frame. So, I decided to make one since buying one for a 20"x40" painting I had done was between $130 and $150 at online prices....I didn't even want to ask my local framer how much he'd make one for. I bought some oak at Home Depot and cut it down to a thickness I wanted and began cutting the bevels and mitered corners. I glued and nailed it together with a new air-powerd brad gun since my old electric one couldn't handle the toughness of oak wood. The airgun made it a piece of cake to shoot the brads in. Once the glue had dried overnight I shot the brads and then began sanding. After that I wiped it down and rubbed oil/sealer/polisher to bring out that awesome golden oak finish. I mounted in to the frame and snapped pics to show you. I might make more of these later on when time permits since I have it figured out now. I'm still trying to build a workbench in the garage to work on these frame pieces but I'm backed up in painting since I've spent so much time preparing for the shows lately....all of that uis done so it is back to painting.
