Popular Post gee-dub Posted March 4 Popular Post Report Share Posted March 4 I am batching out some more interesting frames but these quick and easy scrap gobblers might be of interest. If you have some scrap about 6"x9" you're in. I have a template that allows me to quickly set up the router table. I route a large and a small rectangle about 1/4" deep with a 1/4" spiral bit. Small on one side (the show side) and larger on the other (the recess for the art). Once these grooves are cut you drill access holes at one or more corners for the jigsaw blade to fit in and get a starting point. Then jigsaw the center waste out. Now use a flush trim bit to flush trim the smaller rectangle. Then flip the piece and rabbet the small amount of waste leftover on the larger rectangle. When you are done you have full thickness rectangles with a rabbeted cutout roughly centered. Take after these with your raised panel tablesaw jig. And you end up here. Cut some key hole slots or other method of hanging the 5 x 7 frames. Add finish, glass, mat, art, backer, and turns (or other fixing hardware) and you end up here. That's me and mom at her brother's 90th. They are not fancy and not terribly refined but, if you need a mess of small frames and have some scrap laying around . . . bada-bing! 6 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
