  • 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.

                                Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
