Never made one before, made first one and enjoyed it so I made a few more, they didn’t fit my picture to start with but I’ve since figured out my mistake, saw some projects online with splines so I put some in making it very strong. Walnut and cherry wood with oak and Purple Heart splines made with my home made jig which is just a box with drawn 45 line on it, clamp on frame and Run it through table saw.

Nice looking picture frames. I have never figured the relationship between outside frame size and picture size if you have a simple equation would you share?

I wish I could but I’ve only made about five and got lucky on the last couple and didn’t have to trim picture. I figured out to be more concerned with inside measurements and the outside will take care of itself.
