This frame that made for Jim's birthday. Below is the design that
was approved by Jim's wife. It contains pine needles and pine cones
on one side representing Jim and his wife.  The other side has oak leaves
with three acorns representing their three boys. The back was recessed to
accept a specific picture.
The bottom of the frame has an old board carved in with some nice
sentiments expressed.
Here's the frame completed. It was carved in butternut wood that has a
real nice grain and looks good with a natural finish.
