Free simple woodworking plans and wood craft projects.

In one of my first posts, I showed an example of a wood framed poster that I created. The hardest part for me, and maybe it is for you too, is cutting an accurate 45 degree angle so that each side of the frame matches perfectly. I have always used a miter saw. However, I found a nice video on YouTube that shows a good method for creating, virtually, free picture frames using a table saw. See below. He mentioned that in subsequent videos he goes over other picture framing issues such as gluing and cutting backer board, etc. It's worth watching if you are at all interested in making your own picture frames. You can create custom frames for pennies as opposed to paying a small fortune at a frame shop.
