  • No Measure Picture Frames

    Well while I was working on one of several projects I have going on, I needed to make some more picture frames. I had posted a written tutorial on how I do it a little while ago and thought I would go ahead and make a video on how I do it as well. So here it is. Please let me know what you think of it and please subscribe to my You Tube channel and comment there as well. Enjoy. I know the video quality still needs to be improved, but that is more of a lighting issue than anything and I will eventually get better lighting.

                Great tutorial Chris. This will come in very handy for me in the next few months and save me some cash as well. I have some orders for family portraits for Christmas, ( none paying customers - Lol).
                Thanks again for your efforts and generosity.

                  Thanks for all the kind comments everyone.

                  Mick if you want to make in-expensive frames use 3/4" plywood and paint it like I did. They look great painted. You can also get a neat look if you are using a good grade plywood and you stain them.

                    Nice video Chris. I'll have to try your plywood suggestion. Try ripping some old 2x4's from your scrap pile too. I've stumbled across some very nice grains and colors for a lot of projects

                      Really liked the video, Chris. I've been thinking about trying to make a frame. Now I don't have any excuses... I'l have to give it a try, soon. Thanks for sharing! --ekmouse

                          Great job Chris, I watched one of the other ones where the guy was making an 8 x 10 frame out of barn boards. Was just wondering if he still has all of his fingers after watching him run those boards back and forth on the router table?

                              Very nice job Chris. I like the clamping jig you made. Does it work for all sizes of frames or do you have one for each size you make? I never seem to be able to make more than two frames of any one size.

                                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                                Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...
