I recently bought the Powermatic 701 Benchtop Mortising Machine. So I decided to try my hand at mitered through mortise and tenon picture frames. I probably should have tried something a little easier for my first go around with mortise and tenon. But it was a fun learning experience.
Three were supposed to be 8×10. But I got so wrapped up in the through mortise and tenon joints I forgot to cut to final size first. So they came out about 9×10.
One is pine, amber shellac finish top coated with lacquer. Two are poplar with figured soft maple inlays, dyed clear shellac finish (transtint blue and green) top coated with lacquer. The 11×14 not sure of the wood maybe ash? Amber shellac finish, top coated with lacquer.
This whole project was about learning about through mortise and tenon joints. As well as inlays and color dyes. I do need to practice getting tighter through mortise and tenon joints.
