Grandma's Picture Frame #4: Profiles

02-18-2011 04:44 PM by spunwood | 4 comments »

I have finally finished cutting the frame profiles. I decided to make a bunch of small frames, rather than just one. I really like framing, but boy am I dreading the mitering and glue up! But before getting into the mitering (next blog entry), I wanted to show off some of the profiles. The first two pictures are of the frame I took from the plans on the American Woodworker website. I really enjoyed doing that one. I already tried once on a cove frame I cut, a...

Greene and Greene Picture Frames #1: Design and building of the frames

12-21-2010 12:57 AM by konkers | 4 comments »

I making some picture frames for the family this holiday season. The design draws heavily from Darrell Peart’s Seattle Frame. I did a quick mock up in CAD to play with the proportions. If anyone’s interested, I could upload some dimensioned drawings. After several prototypes to get the joinery right, it was time top cut some mahogany. I got a piece with nice straight grain: Pieces laid out: Stock all milled with square holes made next to the prototype: ...

Machinist Toolbox #3: Carcass parts ready for some groovin'

12-12-2010 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, wasn’t too cold, and the sky was blue (today is cloudy and rainy). I was fortunate enough to be able to use the day for some woodworking. I am at the point where I usually run into trouble. I have a tendency to want to work on the joinery and the problem is that I usually do that before I have all the parts ready leaving me with some parts that go together, but still require work to get the rest of it as well. This time around I decided to get all ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #6: Self-Framing Picture Frame Finished

06-08-2010 02:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a pretty productive day. Among other things, I finished cutting my matching self-framing picture frame, which will be the companion piece to the dresser tray I designed last week. In designing this pattern, I was fighting with whether I should or should not do additional scroll work in the center of the tray. To me it seemed that it was interesting enough on its own. I wanted the scroll work border to be the highlight of the piece, along with the beautiful chara...

Mirror, Mirror #1: How do you frame an 8 sided mirror?

05-01-2010 02:37 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...
