You could use biscuits, they are very strong, another choice might be half laps on your corners, lots of flat grain gluing surfaces then.
There is a better way to put the backing paper on the work. Wet a piece of craft paper, bigger than the frame, back and front by spraying with water. Wipe off and excess water and wait a couple of minutes for the water to soak in. Glue the paper to the frame and weight it down with a few books or a weighted board. Let it dry overnight. The paper will shrink tight. Now take a file and file off the excess paper. You get a nice crisp professional edge without worrying about tape.
***1/8" allowance*** For instance, if the glass/picture measures 8"x10", the *interior* dimensions of the frame should be 8 1/8" x 10 1/8". This 1/8" allowance lets you install the glass and artwork easily.
That's what the mat does (single mat provides 1/16" space, double mat about 1/8" space). I think Ron did include a mat in this project.
I have made a few picture frames. They were not this fancy & I used all hand tools
Ike, are you from Minnesota? What year did you graduate?
Well it depends on the size of your picture. Any size can be used.
A well stocked workshop contains all of those items Bro.
I have had that same prob Bro!
Did you get it yet? How did yours turn out?
Thanks for sharing that Bro!
Right on Info!
How did it turn out? Maybe you could post a picture of it?
Did you put it to use yet? Let us know.
Thanks for sharing that CAM!
The one thing they never show you is how to get the correct measuerments on height and length. Outside or inside measurement?
I'm a professional furniture maker, and I just picked up a few things. Very nice video sir.
Something to consider is that a photo should never come in direct contact with the glass. Moisture from the air will cause a mold/foxing issue on your photo. A thin spacer between the photo and glass separating the two is absolutely necessary here.
Good luck buying a custom mold and stain job for only $59 at a frame shop w/glass and matte Its not the shop he is showing you, its the methods which can be applied. For only a few hundred (Miter saw and a router) I make large frames that would cost hundreds at professional frame shops. Technic surpasses equipment every time and that's where the skill comes into play not the equipment. (Although awesome equipment brings big smiles)
I have spent HOURS trying to get mitred frame corners to match up. INSIDE corner jig - why didn't I think of that???
Great video. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and expertise in such a clear, straightforward manner. Framing shops charge an arm and a leg! So I'm keen to try out making my own. Thanks again :)
I love the video. Can't wait to put it to good use.
