Step 1: Rip Down the Lumber
First i Used some pine and ripped it down to 2 and 1/4" strips. I then lowered the blade and made a few passes to make a step to fit the artwork and glass.
Step 2: Miter
Next i mitered the 4 pieces to make my frame. Just be sure to measure from the back side when cutting to get it just right.
Step 3: Glue Up
I next using painters tape glues up the joints and taped them together to help with movement. You can just use the tape as a clamp and it will hold until the glue dries, but i decided to use my strap clamp to get a tighter fit.
Step 4: Cut the Glass
Next using a inexpensive glass cutter, i sliced down the glass to size.
Step 5: Mount the Art
I finally mounted the artwork behind the glass with ook clips. They work awesome for this!
