Let me start by saying, that’s an excellent looking frame and I enjoyed your videos.

I do have a concern with the spline grain orientation. I believe that you may find that the mitres may open up with seasonal changes because of the spline grain running with the mitre. the glue may prevent this for a year or two but eventually wood movement will win out.

Consider using a spline with the grain oriented perpendicular to the mitre.

Keep up the excellent work.

Wood moves the greatest amount along the grain. If I put the grain perpendicular to the miter wouldnt it just push both sides away from the seam?

I’m sorry to say that I believe your mistaken. wood has its greatest movement across the grain.
