How To Make A Picture Frame

author-gravatar Sean Apr 29, 2018

A year ago I purchased this Henry O. Studley Tool Cabinet and Workbench poster from Lost Art Press that's been sitting in my shop ever since. Well last week I decided to make a picture frame for it. It's made out of quarter sawn padauk with the matte being made out of maple.

For the joinery I went with loose tenons which I cut using the festool domino. For the finish, I went with Osmo Polyx for no particular reason other than I had some on hand and wanted to try it out.  To see how I made the frame, check out the video below.
