    Hi. This is something I did as a little hobby I have. Sometimes I gone on craigslist and look at different ads people post. So on the free post I meet this guy who moved to Salisbury street in Worcester, Massachusetts( old an wealthy area) he was getting rid of some wood he had in his old house he wanted to remodel so I took all the old recovered wood. I think it's old southern yellow pine an painted a dark maroon color original paint. I went to Walmart an bought a world map has some red, maroon colors in the map to match the maroon paint. The whole frame is made of old recovered wood the house was built in 1926 I used the old forged nails to tack in the back. I will make more of these recovered wood frames an I will post them an tell me what you think? Thanks.

      Thanks. In the process of making more frames just looking for the right posters.
