  • 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...

          Celtic knot-shamrock cross
          by Ennobee
          My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

          Hi Jim.
          glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

          Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

          Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
          by jim_mex
          I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
