How to Make Picture Frames | Woodworking Projects

77 Views · Published on Wed, 12 June 2019 · Woodworking Projects

Making picture frames is a great way of getting photos out or drawers, off of phones and hard drives and displayed where everyone can enjoy them. Photos, pictures, drawings, paintings are ideal for sharing and displaying and the best way to make these items stand out is to frame them. For woodworkers, wooden frames are the answer. Unfortunately making and cutting frames is not always as easy as it might seem. We all know that frames need 45 degree corners, but it doesn't end there. The other key to making perfect picture frames is that both opposing sides need to be exactly the same length. If they are not, what happens is that when you assemble the frame, it appears that one of the corner angles is not cut correctly. The problem is that when you try to correct this, it ends up making the problem worse because when you trim one corner, if often opens another corner - worse. There are many different ways to make frames, but the basics are the same 45 degree corners and opposing sides equal length. When you do this you will get perfect corners that seem so easy to make when you know all the secrets. The third element in making picture frames is making them to fit a specific size. If you are using matting around the picture, the matte can act as a bit of forgiving sizing because it is easy to trim, but not so with glass. If you are going to be putting glass in your frame, you really need to get the size correct because trimming glass is difficult at best without proper equipment. Figuring out the size is also easy when you know how, and that involves using the rabbet that all picture frames have and using it as the guideline as shown in the video. So go ahead and make your own, perfect picture and photo frames.
