I'm working on a custom frame for some artwork I got for xmas. I'm trying to go oldschool here and leave out the metal. I used contrasting color woodgrain splines in the corners and and some goodole titebond iii and its sturdy as hell. Now I'm looking for ideas in terms of something to keep the picture, glass, and backing from falling out...again I'm trying to do this project without staples or joint fasteners, all wood....any experience with this?

1/4" panel with a friction fit?
little tiny turn toggles on 2 sides, and dados on the other 2?
dados on the 2 long sides, and make the plexi and backing so they flex into place?
have a short "corner dado" on opposing corners, and have a thin strip that flexes into place?

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I'd probably do the last one 'cause it's different. :)


Oooh, you could cut a dovetail straight through the inside of one edge and have a contrasting key that fits in and holds everything in.

More or less. It could be cool.
