This was my first ever start-to-finish project. I needed a frame for a foam-backed poster of Cezanne’s Card Players. It is far from perfect and has some pretty obvious flaws in the routing. Oh well, I still like it. Finished with combo walnut stain/satin poly.

Flaws? I see no flaws

I recently made a few frames for pictures my wife wanted hung. Perhaps I’ll post them. Yours is beautiful. Did you build a mitre sled to assist you?

I fuss over the flaws on my picture frames also; my wife says I’m the only one who will see them – probably the same thing with you and your frame. It looks great. Keep up the good work – picture frames can actually be a lot more challenging than most people think. I’m planning on building a crosscut/mitre sled to help me make mine better.

I guess it is the job of the creator to find all the flaws….

I did not use a miter sled. Just a miter saw with an accurate fence.

Have your say...
