Beached by Skramstad


Just completed this one. I call it "Beached". It consists of about 76 pieces and is 21" x 17.25". Pretty pleased with how it turned out. I made use of some rough lath pieces for the rocks, which gave them more depth. Picture doesn't show it very well. Rod Skramstad

very nice rod! Just curious, how do you do your frames?

i mount the pieces to a 1/2" backer...then i nail on pieces of stained lath to the outside edge so there is about a 3/4" lip sticking up.then i nail another piece of lath flat on the pic creating the "mat" around the inside of the frame pieces...i considered using color on the mat pieces but thought that if i was trying to get the look of something that has "been around for a while" that just sticking with the same stain would look better....
