I had a picture blown up for my son for christmas of his last football game being in high school. I wanted it to be more meaningful by making the frame myself. So I decided to give it a try. I got everything cut, biscuits in place then glued up. I was so happy everything was coming together, that I forgot I had no frame clamp, so now I have glue on everything and I started to panic! I ran out to my truck and grabbed a rachet strap, it was not pretty but it worked. The end result was a very happy boy!

Great frame! I enjoyed your glue-up story. Also, what a cool photograph. I’m sure your son absolutely loved it!

If I had a quarter for every time I put glue on a joint without having clamps ready…

Good frame! It feels so good making something that has an added meaning for someone :)
