this is the first picture frame i have ever made. i used the same wood that i used to make some of are wedding decorations to make this frame. i cut a 1×4 (top choice lumber) in half, then i cut the frame using a 45 degree jig i made, then i set my table saw blade to 1/4” high ran a cut on all the wood. then cut clear plastic 1/2” over size to fit in the 1/4” grove. Then i stain the wood to make it look old, after that i put the picture in the frame, cut a back for the frame , glue and stapled it together. and gave it to my wife as a surprise gift!! very fun project

These are the best kind of gifts to give, ones made with hands from the heart. Good job!

Looks good, has lots of rustic charm. A great way to preserve and display sweet photos. Great job!
