Hey Everybody, In this episode of the Teen Age Woodworker I make a pretty cool Arts-and-Crafts style picture frame out of Oak for my cousin. Some things that i go over in this episode are half blind dovetails and making a simple triangle peg. here’s what the finished product is.

Click for details!

Well I hope that Everyone likes it! ( and just in case anyone notices the front says Teenage Wooworker, I know i just forgot to change it, Enjoy the show)

Well I hope that everyone liked it. Next time will hopefully be an updated shop tour. Well i hope that everyone enjoyed the show and i hope to see you again next time

Nice work, Dennis!

I like your feather boards. A suggestion would be to add a zero clearance blade insert to your new saw.

Nice project and great video. I really enjoyed it. I like the hand crafted take on a simple object like a frame and a really nice idea on making the ebony plugs. Great work!
