My wife has requested me to make her a few picture frames. This is the first of several to come. I need to make one of the frame presses to assy the frames with but this werks for now. I took a 2×4 and cut a 45deg slot in it. Then I cut it up in 2”-3” pieces for corners. I then took clamps and put pressure on each corner. It was a little aggravating to get straight but it werks. I cut a spline into each corner for visual effect and to strengthen the glue joint. I tapered the inside front and cut a decorative edge on outside front edge on my router table.
I initially cut the angles with my SCMS but later made a 45deg jig for my tablesaw which werked better.
It is made from maple with cherry splines. She hasn’t decided yet weather to stain or polyurethane it.
