Made this 12×24 frame out of some thin Ambrosia Maple stock I had laying around. The keys are made out of Mahogany.
I’m sure there are many good ways of making a frame…. I might have bypassed all those way. I ended up setting the glass in silicon caulking. Looking back I should have put the depth a little deeper, but I plan on making a few more so I should work out the some of the issues. Next up should be a 45 deg sled. These 45’s I cut on the chop saw and used a quick jig on the table saw to cut the key slots.

The frames turned out great. The miters turned out great for cutting them on a chop saw with no fuss? I had to make a 45^ jig for the table saw to get that accuracy.

I have some ambrosia maple & a lot of store bought frames I would like to replace.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks rtbrmb. I cut the 45’s about 1/16th long so I could make slight adjustment and cut to size. I actually enjoyed making the frames and got a lot of ideas for laminating woods and different combinations of router bits to use for the next ones. Great job on those keep sake boxes.

It looks great, pretty wood used. The joints and splines look amazing, tight and well made. Great job!

Have your say...
