Topic tags/keywords: question oak dual driver fitting tool picture frames

I am considering the Logan Graphics Dual Point Driver and would like to know if any LJ has used this tool and how it worked for them as I have a number of picture frames that need the pictures and back mounted.

The frames are salvaged 100 year old red oak.
I tried glazier points without any real success and a lot of effort.

Thanks!

How about going low-tech with finish nails?
Great video on the subject of frames by Frank Howarth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AQGsFZUFlo&list=UU3_VCOJMaivgcGqPCTePLBA&feature=player_detailpage

oldnovice…I have the Logan Dual Driver Elite and it works great. I bought it several years ago on Amazon.com for $43 to use on mirror frames that I built for holding the mirror glass and posterboard backing in. It worked quite well on oak, bubinga and numerous hardwoods.

Thanks Greg that’s what I wanted to know.

Today frames are really inexpensive; Aaron Brothers just had a 1ยข sale buy one get the second one for a penny more. However I get request for special frames; weird size, shape, thickness etc. that you just can’t find so I make them.
What I really like to make are single piece frames. I have made a lot of these for friends and relatives… too many to remember. I like to make these as there are no miter joints and they look “clean”!
