Here are some picture frames I made for these vintage musical instrument posters. The mahogany was salvaged from packing crates. The birdseye maple was scraps thrown away by a cabinet shop. This is the first time I’ve made splined miters and I think they turned out pretty well. This project was the impetus for making a simple splining jig, a feather board, and a miter sled, none of which I’ve used before. I found that in addition to making great miters, the sled also works well as a miter gluing jig as shown in the last picture.
