Miter and Mortise Mania

Nearly all of June found me on the road for the day job, so it's been great to get back into the shop. 

I've wanted all of the frames in our house to match for the longest time. Since I had to wait three weeks for a custom router bit for the MCM Bench I got after these frames.

I added a mortise and tenon to all of the miters to strengthen the joint.

This is just the first three. Six more in the works - why did I want all of these to match again?

for scale: the Herman Miller picnic poster is 36x48 with frame and matte.

This is a little teaser for the bench I am currently building. More to follow after the weekend. Enjoy!
