I was contacted by a customer to make a frame. Of coarse I said yes frame are easy and fast to build. Then the customer told me how big the picture was. This was a whole new set of challenges. normally when I make frames I buy the 8′ molding already to go, all I have to do is cut the miters. And with my Miter Sled this is quick and easy. This time was different if I went with the standard frame molding it would not have looked right so I have to go custom. I first got a 1×8 x 10 piece of Poplar, I milled it down and ended up with two .75″ x 3.5″ x 10′. Using those two boards I milled my profile. On the back, outside of the frame and 15 degree chamfer. The same chamfer on the front, inside just a little larger. Inside, back of frame a rabbit to fit the glass, picture and backing. The front outside of frame is a 3/8″ cove. Altogether this came out great and works well with the size of the piece.
