Picture Frame

Help ! I need a plan for a picture frame. I know the basics but would like to know the correct way to add a 30 degree angle to the 45 degree miter cut to make the pieces inlay. Im using some old , old oak barnwood that I have planed down to 3/4. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How about drawing a sketch and taking a picture.

I am not able to understand your description.

I understand the 45 deg mitre cut, but I am lost at the 30 deg and inlay comment.

Kinda lost me on this part too. Are you wanting the frame to angle out from the wall at 30? I think you want to treat it like crown molding.

If you are trying to make a compound angle like jschaben asked where the frame will angle out from the wall, take a look at this compound angle calculator:
