help / tips on building large frames
First things first Happy Holidays to all
I am planning on making some frames which will be the following size
24"W x 48"H x 8"D wood thickness .75"
I do not have a miter saw or table saw plus I'm in an apartment so I need to make the cuts by hand. I tried finding a miter box for the 45 degree cuts but no luck finding one to accommodate 8" D.
I was thinking of cutting the miter box in half and attaching it to a piece of wood in order to make it wider.
The frames will be used for acoustic panels so they do not need to be crazy strong
Any help / tips on the following would be much appreciated:
1. Besides for cutting the miter box any other ideas on cutting this size by hand?
2. How to make sure everything will come out square?
3. Best clamps / tools / techniques to glue the corners of frame together?
