Awesome. If you can make those you can run door casing, baseboards, cove/quarter round, scribe molding and most trims in your own home !

Just a question or two...did you rabbitt the frame?  Router or table saw?  How did you join the miters?  Thanks

keep those boards man. makes great looking furniture. run metal detector over boards to save planer blades. plane back sides.belt sand fronts leaving saw marks and nail holes I like red mahogany stain it leaves marks looking darker. or just plain laqure looks good too. then mix gray exterior boards for like door centers or coffee table ends and backs etc...same goes for 2x stuff, makes great frames for furniture. made all of my shop cabinets out of same lumber you are cutting, looks pretty cool

I done the frame quickly, I just used a kregg jig. planed  the back so even.   and dado blade for glass, backing, and pic. no one sees the back any way I figure. you could do other joints for miters, this was just quick and easy for me.
