  • Picture Frames

    I would like to replace several old 5 x 7 and 8 x 10" picture frames with wooden frames. I have a few books with frames but I don't really don't care for the fancy ones with all the curly do's. I really like the plan ole fashion ones. Any ideas?

        I have not done it yet but I read this. Rout with a 3/4 inch router bit down the center of a board. Scroll saw through the center of the cut . Then cut your 45 degree angles at the desired length and glue together. It should give you 3/8th inch space on each side for the picture. Hope this helps.

          I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

          I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

          But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

          +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

          It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
