What do you give a carpenter for Christmas?
When a client found a bunch of old rulers, she wanted to have her husband "the carpenter" make this frame. There was only one problem, she wanted to give the frame to him for a Christmas gift.
She called me and asked if I could turn a bunch of old rulers into a frame? I told her to bring them to me and I would give it a try. After talking to her about her ideas, and giving her a few of my own, I began to work on the challenge ahead of me.
|I looked them over to decide |
where they would be best located within the frame. Then I started cutting and glueing.
|I used rulers as fillets in the mat openings.|
|I used rulers for the inside walls.|
One thing that I found fun as I worked on this was that the rulers were from places here in the Denver area. As you can see, I put a ruler with "Denver Colo." along the top rail on the frame (see below).
Another thing I found fun was the phone numbers. Notice the Spruce-9828 (bottom rail). Anyone remember having phone numbers like that?

I sure hope this "measured" up to his standards, being a carpenter and all. Whew!!!
