If you have been able to follow the video you will find all you need to produce the rectangular frame.

(1) Jig Holder is the simple box to hold the material secure and also keep the template in position.
(2) Jig to secure the material to. Note This jig was also used as a template with the same size cut-out of the other template. In the video the complete Jig Holder was reversed to produce the rebate for the photo and the rebate for the backing material.
(3) 40mm Template guide or if you are working in imperial as near to 40mm as you can 1-1/2” will do fine.
(4) a Fine pointed beading cutter TBF 8 1/2 supplied by Carb-I-Tool company
(5) 30mm template Guide
(6) a 10mm straight cutter
(7) 16mm Template guide (5/8”)
(8) Rounding over cutter with a bearing to complete the outside edges or the fine pointed beading cutter used in the router table. Note; I have introduced an alternative method of adding the edge treatment where the router is held with the aid of two rods.

Now if you have all the necessary Jigs and template with the template guides and cutters you will be on your way to complete many picture frames.

Calculation for the cut-out for the templates size of the photo to be inserted plus the difference between the 30mm template guide and the 10mm cutter (Photo Size plus 20mm)
