Dan Hamilton, of Beaufort, SC (https://www.dlhamiltoncirca1762.com) did a beautiful job of putting an antique finish on this carved frame. He stopped by on Thursday to drop it off, and it really turned out beautiful. Dan specializes in traditional techniques of furniture restoration, finishing and furniture building.
I try to stay away from putting a finish on my carvings, as I leave that to the experts in that field. I have destroyed a couple of my carvings by attempting to finish them myself. It really is an art in inself.
This frame is for sale. The outside size is 46″wide x 51-1/2″ tall and the inside is 30″ x 35-3/4″. If anybody is interested in purchasing it, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
