A picture frame I built for a friend. Made using a wardrobe he gave me to salvage wood from.
Completed on 31/03/2017.
The most boring part of the project was sanding all the finish of, sanding concave curves isn't fun.
I cut the mitres using the crappy mitre guage that came with my table saw. If I was doing this again I'd build a mitre sled.
Here's how I glued the mitres together, masking tape and an F clamp to keep them aligned. Can you see the mistake yet?
It was a lot easier than I'd like to pull apart that end grain to end grain glue joint. I expect if this frame gets dropped it'll just pop apart.
After that happy little accident I glued the pieces on one by one to make sure I made a square this time.
Two little tabs are screwed on just loose enough that you can still turn them by hand to hold the backboard and a sheet of perspex in. The frame stands on two feet made of dowels and chunks of wood which can be moved to make the frame portrait or landscape.
