s a watercolor artist I frequently need to frame my art. To construct this jig/sled I Made it at the TechShop
to accurately make 90 degree mitered frame corners and be able to make frames in quantity with precise accuracy for each frame and repeatability in the future. For more info about TechShop
go here: http://www.techshop.wsI
do my own frames for several reasons, less expense yes, but also I am a woodworker, and have strong concerns for caring for the environment. So I make my frames by acquiring re-purposed/recycled/reclaimed wood.T
herefore in this project I have used:
• A melamine clad cabinet door 14" W x 22" L repurposed t this project
• A scrap piece of aluminum extrusion 23" L that has a slot for 1/4-20 Hex head bolts on the top and 3/8-16 bolts on the side.
The slots are handy for my adding a flip stop and a sliding stop in the near future.
• Scrap pine from the TechShop Wood Bin.
• Reused/recycled drywall screws to fasten the wood pieces together
