I made these frames quite some time ago when I first got my lathe.
The wood piece is screwed to a faceplate, & let her spin.
You can use any depth you want, with a slight inward angle , but less than a dovetail.
The picture is cut to the bottom size, & the picture just pops in, it’s held in place by the
at the bottom of the angle.
These are a real fast, & easy gift item.
They’re made from wood in my scrap box.
(The scrap box is real handy for a woodturner.)
The outside dimensions on these are about 5 inches.
You may notice that they’re not the smoothest turnings,
but they look fine from viewing distance when they’re hung on the wall.
Barb installed the photos in them, & hung them on her antique picture wall.
