I stack cut three of each of these two patterns. I decided to try something different though and play around with coloring styles. If you look closely, these were stack cut, so each are cut identical, yet they are each different. Some have the dark side of the luan plywood showing. Some have the light side. Some are painted.
As for the frame, I felt these needed something different than the mahogany I usually make my frames out of. I decided on construction grade pine ripped down for frames. It gave these portraits more of a rustic look in my opinion.
