Picture Frame Moulding made in the Woodworking Shop

Many of us are surrounded with pictures that we cherish. We may have pictures of family and friends throughout the years. Then again we may have photographs of special occasions such as births, weddings, or graduations. Simply put we have pictures and art work that are everyday reminders of many pleasant thoughts and memories.

WOW! Bob!

What a batch you’re making there!

Are you going to cut the dado for the banding inlay on the next installment?

Looks great!

Very inspirational…

Thank you.

DJ…Merci beaucoup!

Thanks for the thumbs up on the “bestial sound.”
Always welcome!

Joe…Got a pretty good batch going…Christmas you know!
Actually, the wood inlay dado is made on this video. It is in the last sequence and not obvious. That’s one reason I included the still photo. This way you can see the complete moulding profile.
Remember to wear your ear and eye protection while watching..;)
Anytime!

bob, Your videos continue to be an inspiration to me! I’ve never done a picture frame before. My brother is a photographer and took some awesome skyline pictures of Chicago that he wants blown up…I told him if he blows one up for me too, I’ll make us both some picture frames. Your video comes at a perfect time – i’m excited to see the next one in line! (there is a next one…right?) Thanks a lot for the time you put into these! Your videos are definitely high on the list of favorite woodworking videos!!

dakremer…Glad to hear that you are enjoying the videos. Once you begin making a picture frame…you’ll be making more than one. The next one? ...stay tuned. Thanks for your support!

bentlyj…
You ask a very good question. Also, your answer is right on as well. Gluing the wood inlay banding into the dado prior to cutting miters is something that I have considered. However, I believe there is a time to do it and a time not to do it. Here are a few thoughts…

1.) When there is a repetitive pattern I prefer to have an overall balanced look if possible. This may require a custom fitting of the wood inlay after the miters are cut to achieve the end result.

2.) Here is an example of when I would glue the inlay into the dado prior to cutting the miters.
The banding is a straight design where all miters will match. What do I mean? The banding is simply linear. You may have contrasting colors such as maple and walnut. Example: 3 strips run the length of the banding…maple, walnut, maple. In this case all miters will mirror one another providing a balanced match.
In an upcoming video you will see how the miters are cut and fit. Also you will see how the inlay is installed. I believe that you will want to see it.

Excellent question. Thanks for asking!

Nice Video Bob, I just bought that dado set yesterday @ Rockler. They sent me a 20% off coupon that I could not resist. $160.00 instead of $200.00 I can’t wait until Monday when we get back from the Sand Dunes too try them out! Look Fwd to the next video.

Dan…Keep some extra paper and a pencil sharpener close by. We’ve got some more work to do…;)
Always welcome!

Ken…You got a heck of a deal! Plus, you will love the dado set! There’s so much that you can do with it. Thanks!
