Used some scrap poplar and red oak I had laying around to create this. I think it came out pretty good for my first picture frame. Took a few hours because I had to let the glue dry, changing blades, and getting my terrible table saw to tilt. Anyways next one will be better...I feel if I spend money on some exotic wood I wouldn't mess it up next time. I'd like to add some better contrasting color...Giving this one to my girlfriend

I use a lot of SUPER GLUE, had great results, and really speeds up the process. Need to have things set up ahead as it often sets/bonds when first touches the other part. I put making tape and a pen mark line to guide such.

Just what works for me,

Looks nice with the contrast and the outside bevel, great way to use up scraps too. :thumbsup:

Yes those are corner splines, used a simple jig left over from other project.

I didn't use any stain just clear poly acrylic brush on finish...I am not stain/finish expert, If i had more time I would have tried the Deval sprayer I bought
