  • 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.

                                Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

                                OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.

                                OK folks, picture....I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here are a few of the autumn leaves I cut against the beautiful blue sky we had this morning.
