Chet Posted April 10, 2020 Share Posted April 10, 2020 Submitted on the old forum by Kev I didn't video this project and picture frames just don't do well on YouTube. Regardless, I thought these turned out pretty good and I wanted to show them off! Here's a few with pictures in them.. Follow up posts 1) Dang!!! Those did! Did you just rabbit out the back inner side? 2) Yes, there's a rabbet on the back side. The insides have a cherry strip with a chamfer on it. By the time the rabbet and chamfer was cut, the cherry ended up being a very small detail but, a detail nonetheless. I'll also say that the miter sled that I made for doing picture frames made these really painless! 3) Great job, Kev! Man! I really need to make me a miter sled. I have several router bits that I bought years ago to make molding that have never been used. I also have a molding machine that could make great looking molding with the right knives. I just need to make myself build a miter sled so I can get very accurate cuts. Again - great job! 4) Thanks! I'm super happy with that sled and just can't imagine doing frames without it. To do 6 frames that quickly without fussing with the corners really takes a lot of stress out of the build! 5) Really nice Kev! Not blowing smoke but, I’ve used your miter sled on three occasions so far and am sold on it. You might want to post another link to it for Keggers and others. Did you Domino the corners on these as I don’t see any splines? 6) No domino, they have splines.. Cherry to match the small inner section. Digging deep in the archives here for that video...lol Also, there's a free set of plans on my website and, of course, I'm always here to answer questions. 7) Very nicely done! That cherry accent makes them pop!
