Introduction: How to Make a Picture Frame
Here are all the steps on making a picture frame right from the start!
You will need:
Wood (size depends on how big the frame is, and your tastes.)
If you have come from my instructable, https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-Your-Very-Own-Hardwood-Flooring-Frame/
You can skip the routing steps.
Step 1: Router the Wood
First, we need a groove in the back to hold the picture in. I used a 1/4" bit.
Next, for looks I used a bit for the front.
Step 2: Cutting You Wood
I have a good cut-and-turn method, so after you have changed your saw table to 45 degrees, you will not have to move it again. Measure your cuts right in the bottom of the V of the groove.
After you have measured, cut where you have measured, right in the bottom of the groove.
I am making a 4x6" picture frame, so I am making two 6" ones and two 4" ones.
Step 3: Gluing the Frame
Last step! Put glue on the ends of your two smaller pieces of the frame, and if you have a square frame, put glue on two of the pieces opposite each other. Last, square the frame with your square or against a straight board. If you used a lot of glue, It might be a good idea to clamp it down so it doesn't slip. Now, once it is dry, just screw 2 screw eyes in, and attach wire to it!
