I think question no. 5 is really the question that you should be asking. Have you researched your market for a demand for this type of frame? The majority of picture frames are produced with specialized machines that produce nothing but frame trim and does them in bulk therefore allowing for a good profit margin. I see you looking at a possibly expensive machine and very narrow market. While this may lead to a possible profit you really need to identify your intended market and research the need for your product before making such a major investment. Now, if you just want to use your CAD skills and own a CNC machine, then that is a totally different question. How do I know this? Real life experience. And BTW, I spent my life in engineering and helping usher CAD into an engineering environment.
