I picked up a Logan 750 matt cutter a year or so ago off of Craigslist for a steal of a price and I had some pics and prints that I’ve wanted to frame for a long time now. So I built the Woodsmith miter sled (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/78354) , bought some matt boards, and made some saw dust. The first pic is framed in cherry with a walnut outer frame. This profile came from a book I had. The second is solid walnut that copied the profile of a overly priced frame we got at Michaels. It’s held in the corner by a walnut spline.
The third (blurry) pic was an idea I got from the same book. You drill a hole with a forstner bit deep enough so the hooks/hangers aren’t exposed. Then I chiseled a little “ramp” from the deepest part of the hole for the cable. This will save your wall from nicks and dings. I thought it was a great idea and it really works.
