And it shall be called, the behemoth.
When I was asked to do a Lord of the Rings inspired portrait, I immediately started thinking about the frame. I was set on making a frame with doors that resembled those from hobbit houses. I was thinking heavy, slatted, rustic doors. Today, I started the building process. I began with a simple mitered from made out go hefty 2x4. The doors will be made of slats cut from reclaimed porch wood. Brass hardware will be used on the doors to give a sort of medieval feel.
