In this video we're going over basic picture frame making and everything you need to know to get started. If there's one thing every woodworker makes multiple times it's picture frames. All of the cuts and profiles in this tutorial is done on the tablesaw and there's no need to use a router. Picture frames can be as simple as the ones in the above video or complex with inlays, layering and profiles. I personally like a simple frame to let the artwork or photograph be the highlight. In the video I go over multiple ways to strengthen mitered corners and how to cut perfect 45 degree miters.

Making the frame is only half the battle. Photographs like to be mat and mounted so we also cover how to cut mat board with a mat cutter and how to professionally mount your artwork. I then show multiple ways of securing the artwork into the frame with point drivers and brad nails and then finish it off with a protective dust cover and picture frame wire.

Successful picture frame making relies on three things; miters that add up to exactly 90 degrees, equal length pieces and strong joints that will last a lifetime. I've made a couple of jigs to help speed up the process and make picture frame making quick and easy.
