There are 5 pictures Included here. They are of the Process of the Picture Frame, Picture 5 is a Dry Fit of the Pieces together, I glued them up this evening, tomorrow I’ll be Cutting the Miters.

The Picture frame is made from White Oak. I Ripped a 6” Piece into 2 2” Long pieces. the Remaining 2” Piece I routed a profile on both sides “All 4 Corners” as you can see in Picture 2. and I ripped it down the Middle.

In Picture 3, I Made a 3/4” Dado with my Router in the 2” Pieces for the profiles to fit in the Middle. as you can see in Picture 4.

In Picture 5 is in better lightening. It’s a Side View of the Profile of the Picture Frame. When the glue drys and I sand it down, I’ll be cutting the Miter’s and then Gluing up the Picture Frame tomorrow, I’ll have pictures tomorrow of the Finished project.

This is just a quick Summary of a walk Threw lol.

Picture #6, Completed Picture Frame. The miters are not as tight as I’d like them, but it works, it’s functional, I don’t have a Shooting board or I could refine the corners better.

@Jim, I just posted the Picture of the Finished Frame. it’s a very nice frame, just my Miter saw was off and needs retuned up and I didn’t know, so I had to use my Miter Box to refine the 45’s. Still not the Greatest, but it’s functional.

@roger. I thought about that. I just have to have wood and then figure out the best way to tackle it. My saw don’t have miter slots around the blade. It’s only on the router table attachment. Once I get the wood and figure it out il post that as well. I know one will help out a lot.
