  1. Western Frames

    a lot have seem to like my western frames so maybe i can give something to someone who haven't found out about this trick
    okay i bought 1x4 x8" western rough cedar $4.29 each spit a bunch in half.
    then set fence and ripped sides about 1.125 got 3 out of each 8' then ripped
    dado to accept picture and glass. i glued edge of the 1 3/4" piece and placed 1.125
    i air nailed it with 1" brads. after i made some patterns and laid out a long and short
    piece for making 11"x14" frame. glued edges pop 4 staples 2 each side. then hit edges
    with orbital sander to knock slivers off. now to make them old. get 2 individual pieces of
    0000 steel wool and gallon of whit vinegar and plastic seal-able tube that will hold 2
    gallons. pour vinegar and steel wool and close up for at least 2 days. open stir if its all
    dissolved add 1 gallon water to mixture. now paint all expose surfaces get them wet
    . let them set over night add hangers that's it. now i hear it only works in western cedar
    and some times you will see orange spots i touch them with liquid again and they get less bright.
    think it makes my western pictures. any questions please ask
