Made my first project using the new Mortising Machine. It’s a rough Arts and Crafts style picture frame.
Material is 1×3 pine which is part of why it’s pretty rough.
I didn’t want to do a lot of glue clean-up so the only glue is on dowels that pin in each corner. The tenons fit pretty tight by themselves.
I have an old map from 1897 of the city I live in that I wanted to frame.
Besides the machine I tried some new techniques with some success. As usual I learned a lot and for me that’s what it’s all about.
