Thanks to Ana's plans I was able to build this in a couple of hours. It's not necessary, but a miter saw makes this project a cinch. I used one coat of Minwax Mahogany for the stain and distressed the wood with various sharp edged tools from my garage. I used a large Lowes moving box ($1.50) to cut the backing to 18"x24" and spray glued it to the print. I didn't use glass partly because its expensive and I was a little lazy. As you can see in the pictures below I just stapled the back to the frame. Even without the glass, I think it came out pretty well. Another project completed to go in the mountain house....
