I made this for my wife she wanted to display some photo’s. I could only find 3 panel picture frame screens at the store and I wanted to have more. So I made this 4 panel picture frame screen. This is made from alder and birch plywood for the backs. I made it to fit a 8×10 photo but now she has started to display some of her scrapbook pages in it. I should have made it to fit a 8.5×11 sheet of paper. I guess better luck next time?

Shayne,

This is an interesting project. I am guessing that the pictures are simply taped to the panel? If the pictures were mounted in the opening with a birch panel backing then you could put either an 8×10 or 8.5×11 in there. With the larger picture you would crop some of the edge but it would be just like mounting a picture in a frame.

But if mama is happy with it that is all that counts. Besides this one is full and it looks like you need another one. So you could build it to hold an 8.5×11 sheet.

Have fun.

Scott, That’s the thing the isn’t to happy with she has to cut the 8.5×11 sheets down to get them to fit. She would have like it to fit a 8.5×11 sheet w/o cutting it down. She changes the pictures out so we always have different pictures all the time.

Mario, Thanks

Tell you secret I always the my wife that for me to finish the project (no matter the project) I a timely manner I need to buy a tool for the project. That’s how I’ve got almost very tool in my shop. We’re not talking about the cheap tools ether. She try to get me to buy those, but noway. I’ve tell her if she wants me to spent the money twice or three time over then yes I will buy the cheap tools for you. That works! So now I get the good one’s
