  • need a 12"x12" frame made ASAP

    im almost finished scrolling a portrait for a good friend of mine but wasnt thinking about where i'd get a frame for it for the fellow.

    he's going to be giving it to his daugter for christmas, so i need to find a frame 12"x12" that has enough room for a 1/4" thick piece of wood to fit in.

    if you or anyone you know can make such a thing for me (at a fair price of course, please let me know asap. as far as what its made of, something like oak, cherry, or birch

    If it is going to hang it on a wall, Michaels Crafts will have what you need. Frames designed for oil canves usually have a recess of at least 5/8".

    If you needed a frame finished on both sides, then frames designed to hang stained glass panels in windows would fit the bill

    ( as an example.

      Timm-- does it have to be 12x12-- go to walmart or me I go to the dollar store and buy a nice looking frame-- when you take the glass out a 1/4 ply fits very well in the center- I use backer board the size of the frames outer edges and stain it to match the frame-- it works very well this way and it isn't all that hard to do.

        Not an inexpensive solution but craft stores like Michael's and Hobby Lobby sell frame sections that can be cut to size. Here's another idea. Rather than frame the entire piece, add a decorative scroll to each corner (something you could make yourself). Here's a pic of what I'm trying to say...

          Just Wondering...

          Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

          With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

          I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

          Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

          I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

          If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

          Hi Linda, great find...I think.

          Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
