This freestanding frame allows the display of two pieces of art simultaneously on a tabletop, desk, or other flat space. It is designed to be easily disassembled to change artwork. The sleek design and basic joinery in this frame make it a great one-day project. It has a wide base, a narrower top, and through-tenons on the uprights. Grooves, bevels, and mortises are the basic construction method. Tenons, wedges, and pegs keep the frame together. Once you’ve made one of these frames, you’ll want a whole set in different sizes. Luckily, that will be easy to accomplish. Read how Christian Becksvoort builds this frame in Fine Woodworking, issue # 212.

Nicely done Betsy. I need to add this one to my 'To-Do' list!
Hi Mistrfix: You can get all the info you need to build the frame in the current issue of Fine Woodworking, # 212. (see link above). It looks like the original "blurb" got posted low on the page and maybe you didn't see it. --Betsy

I love the pins.
Did you use glue on the base?
My current phase (10 years) is puzzle work. No mechanical or chemical attachment.
How did you attach the base? Simple force mortise?
