Thats a fantastic tutorial. I am making a picture frame too, but how do you keep the glass, matting, picture, and backing in the frame after it is all put together?

Glazier's Point setting tools

The triangular points are pressed into the sides of the frame on the back using one of these from www.rockler.com.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Thank you Nick

There are probably a few methods. One of them as shown by Woodnthings.

I used a few pieces of thin Oak as on the pics (can be nade also from metal or, you can use large washers)...I calculated the glass + cardboard + plywood and routed to that depth.

I installed a leg on a hinge and a string so LOML can hang it or just put it standing on a shelf or cabinet...the string is holding the leg from "opening" all the way...

Regards
niki

Niki,
Good set of pictures to show your method. Detailing the "corner blocks" and strap clamp makes it easy to understand.

Glazier's points like these:



Are just a push in type...no specialized tool is needed.
