Just finished the oak frame for this portrait. I did the pic with 1/8 in. BB Ply & some color for the backer. I did the frame in 1x2 oak & finished with the router for a nice round over look. I stained it with colonial & left the lighter side plain oak. Hope you like it. Thanks

Thank you all for your kind words. I like doing portraits, because it is a real challenge. I choose a photo & make a copy. Then transfer to a pattern sheet with just a pencil. I have an artistic talent, & that helps me a great deal. I fill in all the details after the general pattern is traced onto the plain paper pattern. Some areas are difficult, but, usually come out ok. I plan on doing one for my daughter & son-in-law next. Wish me luck. Thanks again

Great job, Perk,
Your artistic talent shows as you analyze the photo to pattern.
You made some great artistic choices such as the sun-glasses detail.
That frame is also an excellent piece of wood-working.
Thanks for sharing and God Bless! Spirithorse
