That's not a mistake. Its purdy (PRDE)!

I like it.


When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

was making a picture frame mainly to practice since I'm a newbie. cut about 1/4 inch out of the inside of the frame for a piece of glass to fit over the pictures. re-adjust the table saw to cut the miters, ripppp, hmm must have wiggled a bit or didn't have the saw just right joints were a little loose, ok, try again...check all the setting forgot, to tighten the piece that holds the table from raising up and down..ok, next try,....sizzzing, pieced together, nice miter joints, I was impressed with my self...till I turned it over and seen the part for the glass was on the outside rather than the inside of the picture frame started out to hold several pictures and now can only hold 1 full size
