    I'm looking at making the presentation of my photos a bit more interesting, but not come up with anything actually more interesting than:
    - makinga 3D cube
    - making a mobile
    - putting them on a table top under glass.

    What else is there in the world of artful framing that I could make (and further clutter up my house with)?

    Only limited to your imagination! Use wood, stone, or metal or anything. Personally I go with simple but expensive frames and mats.

    i really like the idea of putting them under glass on a coffee table or whatever.
    this would look real neat.

    one of my favorite stores in edmonton ab is custom made furniture out of steel.
    perhaps you could find someone who does similar stuff to make custom frames.
    perhaps a very large piece of steel with cut outs the same sizes of your pictures (i'd vary the sizes so they are not all the same). its neat what they can do with a grinder and different paints and stains.
    this would very very unique.

    techie people (especially with limited wall space) will take an old laptop with a good display and convert it to a digital frame.

    always sounded like a fun project... Think of all the possibilities (be creative) of what you can use as the frame itself.

    I like the framing. Take your best shots, enlarge them to at least 8x10 or 12 and just cover the walls.

    Ones you REALLY like, you can make 20x30 posters out of. (assuming they were shot on film...)
