Introduction: IN MEMORIAM

About: In my shop I have a name for hammer, saw, and plier. The saw is Tess, the hammer's Joe, and Glumdalclitch is the plier. Yes, I'm brillig, and my slithy toves still gyre and gimble in the wabe. With that, le…

This Instructable is in memory of a departed soul. Here is the story.

Step 1: THE RAGING TONERS

Back in the days before the Pandemic, my son and his friends formed a Karaoke Group they named The Raging Toners. An honorary member of this group passed away and my son asked me if I could add to this painting of the group I did back in 2015. He wanted his friend's image painted ethereally in the upper right corner which I did. Then he mentioned he wanted to present it to the bar in which they used to sing. The painting needed a frame.

Step 2: MATERIALS

A neighbor of mine was closing his woodshop and gave me lots of scrap hardwood lumber. In these scraps were pieces of oak and a piece of walnut which had a groove already in them. A grove the right thickness to fit the edges of the painting.

Step 3: THE BOARDS WERE TOO SHORT

The boards were not long enough to make a continuous frame so I improvised.

Step 4: I NEVER HAVE PROBLEMS

I ONLY HAVE CHALLENGES!

I connected the frame together with pieces of walnut. For a bit of pizazz, I made two keystones for the top and bottom connections and regular-sized pieces for the sides.

Step 5: GLUE AND BAMBOO SKEWERS

I glued all the pieces and secured all the corners with bamboo skewers.

Step 6: FINISHED WITH TUNG OIL

I used Tung Oil to finish the frame.

Step 7: THE FRAMED PAINTING IS DONE, BUT ...

I gave the painting to my son and he now waits for the bar to open when it is safe to do so.
