This is the picture frame pictured in the frame clamp post. The lightning where I took the pictures was bad so pic aren’t good. I have been experimenting with different angles and decorations on the frame face. This one has 2 groves on front with one a little wider that the other. I don’t use anything but glue on the joint so I have been using splines to reinforce the joints. Splines werk well and add to the looks I think.
A cabinet maker friend of mine lets me get the cutoffs from his business and he orders thicker boards and planes them down so the boards I get are sometimes diff thicknesses. This makes ma have to be careful about mixing diff boards in my frames as I don’t have a planer myself. Maybe soon but not now.
One frame I made earlier I used a bisque but that was a little harder to manage for me so I went to the spline.
The frame is 16” x 20” made from poplar. Sides are 2”w x approx 7/8”h with a 5/16 rabbit approx 3/8” deep for the pic and glass.
