Last year we hosted a party for a bunch of friends and family. It was wonderful to have so many close friends and relatives having a good time together. Anyways, that isn’t what this post is about. Early on in the planning stages of the party it was decided that we should spit roast a pig. Not just any little pig though, we wanted to do a large one in the 80 to 90 lb range. That is a lot of meat to spin.
There were a few commercially available rotisseries to had for quiet a few $$$, as well as some rental ones that had a cost that was a bit easier to swallow. But where is the fun in that? I had some motors laying around and a desire to make something, so off I went.
V recently got a wonderful Scott Campbell print called ROCKET HOUSE that needed an equally as wonderful frame to call home. I attempted to take pictures of the process, but unfortunately got distracted by the whole making process and only managed to snap a few… oops.
This humble picture frame started off as a piece of Eastern hard maple left over from the cutting board I had made a while back.
A few quick cuts on the bandsaw and I was left with some more manageable pieces of wood.
Then I started to forget about taking more pictures. After a few more bandsaw cuts, some time at the router table, some chops with the miter saw, I was left with an almost-picture-frame that looked like this.
Then the hand-waving magic really happened. Out popped a completed picture frame complete with an acrylic sheet to protect the wonderful print!
