would like to know how to set up a jig for picture frame construction.?

How do you build a jig for  different size picture frames, for example, 8x10 or 5x7 or bigger?

Are you looking for commercial production i.e. 1000's of units all the same or a bespoke service making frames on demand?

Buy a miter box and a good saw and a bench. That's all you need.

His profile says he is 99. He might not have the strength to do a lot of sawing.
I wonder if there is a limit on the age setting. Hmmmm,

I set mine to 250 and a box popped up asking if I was really 250. Clever ---

If your 99 though I don't know that you should be using power tools by yourself. You should have a "spotter" to help out.

Well, this isn't exactly for making picture frames but the principle is the same. Its the jig I made for cutting floor pieces.

The point is to get the joint correct. The length can be anything scaled up or down.  Just put marks on the jig for where the different lengths go to.
