I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out!

I was commissioned to build this frame and thought I would take you guys along for the ride.

The build consists of poplar stock, glass, black vinyl decals, glue

Primary construction method was domino reinforced miters. The glass was held in with a rabbit.

If you have any more comments, questions or suggestions please leave them here or on YouTube.

Again great video! Great quality, you have a good voice and well lit shop.

May I make one suggestion? You seem to make relatively simple projects (which is great!) but you use a tool like the Domino where people who need help making these simple projects most likely don’t own any Festool products. I would suggest sticking to more readily available tools for people who are hobbyist or just starting out. Just a quick suggestion :)

Other wise great video and I can’t wait for the next one!
