I always liked the spline idea in picture frames for strength, except I could not see them once the frame was on the wall.

So I decided to put my splines on the face of the frame for strength and decoration. Just to be different.

All picture frames are made out of barnwood with hardwood splines/inlays.

No pictures in them yet, waiting until I get some matboard cut.

These look really good, Beau. Very unique idea.

Hi Beau.

I’m making a shadow box with a face frame. I want to use splines in my corners also. Would you mind telling me how you did your build. Thanks.
