These square tiles are framed using reclaimed solid hard wood and soft wood. A lot of blood sweat and tears go into making these frames look polished. I have to say wood is not my forte but I do like the process, any advice is most welcome.
I usually choose to just oil or wax the hard wood. Soft wood gets more of a varnish or stain to bring out its best. I like to use reclaimed wood and for me any imperfections give the frame character.
