  • Help with framing

    I have been doing fretwork for a few months now and would like to get into doing some pictures. The problem I am having is that the only plywood that I can get locally is 1/4 inch, and that does not want to fit in the frame with the glass. Is there anything that I can do besides order specialty wood or have it professionally framed?


    I moved your thread to a more appropriate forum to maximize traffic and get you more responses to your request/question.

    You can order 1/8" ply online from several locations including ebay.
    You can use a router and rout the rabbet in the frame deeper, or you can make your own frames.
    Some of us depending on the project prefer not to put glass over our work so the recipient can feel the wood .

    Try sloans woodworking for plywood. Just one source.

      Mount your pictures in a frame without glass. Get frames with deeper rabbetts. I buy oak or pine frame stock at a local lumber yard and make my own frames. the frame stock comes with various rabbett depths.

        Glad things worked out.

        I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

        Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.
