This was my first attempt at a picture frame. It was commissioned by my wife to frame a print for our friend/her boss. I have not made a miter sled yet and I just received my miter saw for Christmas, so the angles the were done just using the miter gauge on my table saw. Actually all the cutting was done on the table saw. The wood is some spare poplar I had on hand from another project, stained with Minwax English Chestnut and finished with shellac. I didn’t have any framing points or the tool to use them, nor did I want to spend $30 on the tool and supplies for just one frame, so I just used some 18 gauge brads that I trimmed down a bit.
I think I will definitely build a miter sled the next time I try this. It was a real pain to change the miter around for multiple cuts. Several other things were learned to make the process easier for next time.
