Well folks, I’m back!
Now a month or two ago, my Grandma was needing some frames for cross-stitch pieces. Usually I would just give her a simple pine, beveled-edge frame to paint. This time, I decided to try my hand at spline joints.
The first two photos are the frames I made for her, you’ll notice different patterned splines on each frame. These were my very first try at these things and MAN, I had a blast! If woodworking is ever getting dull, go out and try something new! It’s an amazing feeling to add to your skill level. :)
A couple days later I went on to experiment with the jig I had made for these splines and came out with a couple fun joints that I hope to incorporate into future projects, such as cabinet doors. :)
For those of you who are interested, I have put together a pictured step-by-step tutorial into a FREE DOWNLOAD PDF for you all to enjoy and hopefully benefit from! :)
If you have any questions about my jig, frames or anything, let me know!
To all my fellow woodworkers,
Just have fun! :)
