My daughter asked me to make her a frame for a map she had recently bought for her (mumble grumble) future husband. Well having recently built a mitersled, I decided this would be a good opportunity to give it a proper road test. Had some short pieces of rough oak 1×8’s… so it was off to planer, joiner and a few passes accross the router table then came the moment of truth….the mitersled. The frame is roughly 38 1/2×26 5/8 which really put the frame clamp to the test as well. Well glued it up last night and left it in the clamp overnight. A wee bit of rough sanding to knock down the high spots along the miter cuts…. obviously my little talk with Barney the shop dog about quality control wasnt very effective…. and its ready for the daughter to pick a finish. Having consistantly had issues with my mitered corners, I have to say I am very pleased with the results.
