My fiance at the time wanted some picture frames to display pictures at our reception after our wedding. Her mother and her found some at a local store that they really liked but cost $150 bucks a piece. So i said i could make them i just needed a miter saw and i would do it. So, I got a saw and she got the picture frames all for the same price as it would have been to buy the ones at the store. then after i started i made the multiple picture picture frame for a guy at the office that had a bunch of pictures of his new baby with no where to display them. And the last two picture frames were wedding gifts for our parents from my wife and I. the other three my wife painted a patina look. They all turned out well. i also had to make a frame jig that i am not sure if i found on here or some other site, it has been a while and i have slept since then. Thanks for looking!

oh yeah the 4th picture reminds me. I can’t seem to figure out how to get my saw to cut a true 45* angle consistently. can anyone help me with that?

Good swap. Old adage, Every job needs a new tool no matter what it is ;0)
Plus look at all the points you are racking up with your fiancée. Don
