So I’m in the middle of a project making a picture frame using my router, but more about that when it’s finished.
So I tried to use my band clamp to keep the 4 sides of the picture frame at a 45° angle and was having a terrible time so I when online and found this great I idea of making your own frame clamps out of scrap wood. Below is a sketchup model of what I made.
You basically need the following.
12” of 1×6 lumber
A speed square to find the 45° angle of the pieces.
A jigsaw to cut out the inner frame clamp this leaving the outer frame clamp
The only negative thing about this method is that if your making small 4×6 picture frame you can only clamp the top corners simultaneously and then will have to clamp the lower corner after the top corners have dried…
If you have any ideas on how to clamp all 4 corners at the same time I’m all ears…
