This is a frame I made for the ladyfriend for christmas. It was built quite large (26’‘x33’‘) to accommodate an old poster that was previously just tacked to the wall. It is tiger maple, with a purpleheart border and maple splines and dowels along the perimeter. Nothing too fancy here, but I was going for a traditional look and she was very pleased with the present. The last two pictures are of my spline jig that I have been using alot lately. It bolts to the fence of my table saw sled to keep the kerf along the exact same path effectively making it a zero clearance cut (I dont trust my table saw fence). The design works well, but with the sled and right angle, the project is elevated an inch above the blade, somewhat limiting depth of cut. This has not been a problem yet, but should it be in the future, a couple of quick adjustments should buy me another 1/2’’ or so. Thanks for looking, all comments/critiques are appreciated.
