Lastly this Christmas I made a pair of cove picture frames for my Sisters.

I started out making the cove molding on the table saw, the routed the rabbit in for the picture and glass. Cut the miters on the table saw and glued them up using a ratchet strap as a clamp. The coves were smoothed out with a goose neck card scraper, sand paper, and a lot of elbow grease. The finish is water based poly. I figured all the set up angles and how much lumber each frame would require with on line calculators I found through google. The wood is Utile.

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy new year!

Nice looking frames.
When you check out what frame shops charge for frames it makes all the scraping and sanding worth it.

Awesome frames, even nicer art. Looks like the open bid items for a DU dinner. Makes me smile anyhow.

Thanks for posting

Beautiful frames and perfect miters.
I hadn’t heard of Utile until now, so I did a little research and would like to share this link on your post.

Keep up the nice work !! Happy New Year.
