Chris Fitch, senior designer for Woodsmith magazine takes you step-by-step through “building” picture frames. He offers pointers for making a one-piece molded frame and shows how to add contrasting wood to a basic frame. His easy-going style makes the entire process seem so simple.
In less than an hour, Chris manages to rout moldings for two frames, cut the rabbets and miters, glue the frame up (with some great tips for clamping), plus cut the mat and glass to size for a finished frame.
