I made these for my pastor, who runs a prison ministry some 80 to 100 miles from him. Well, his “flock” gave him a picture of them all, with signatures on tyejh back He wanted a frame that would show off both sides of the picture. No problem, except that the rabett had to be somwhat precise so that the wooden inserts would hold down gthe glass, yet not extend too far over the frame. I made the rabbet cuts then measured the glass sheets, subtracted that from the depth of the rabbet and set my table saw to cut a thin strip for the remander. They pad the glass from the metal of teh turn buckles. The frame was so heavy that I did not feel comfortable just using a sawtooth hanger with small nails, so I installed a wire hanger and buttom pads on bottom. You can see the V-nails I use, in addition to glue, for the miters.
I could have enmtered these in the 2×4 contest, as I used only 1/2 of an old (early 1900’s) 2×4 to make this set of rames.
