A friend asked me to make this frame for a special picture they had. The overall size is 26”x46”. It came from one piece of 5/4” poplar and I moulded it on my table saw. There is one small detail on the outer edge that I used a router. Picture 2 is a profile view before cutting and glueing. Poplar was chosen because of cost for them and they wanted to paint the frame, although I always prefer stain.

Good job on the Frame. The moulding looks nice, as well. I’ve never tried making moulding on my table saw.

Thanks woodchuck. I ran each piece at an angle across the blade by clamping straight edges on both sides of work piece. I then started raising the blade about an 1/16 to 1/8 inch for each pass creating a cove mold. I then cut of one of the edges. Its also a way to make crown molding. Let me know if you have any other questions.
