Making picture frames is a great way to take advantage of your woodworking skills and, as you make them and give them away, your friends will love you for it. They’re a great gift. If you’ve struggled with making picture frames (or haven’t even tried it) because the prospect of cutting miters makes smoke come out of your ears, we’re here to help. This picture frame is miter-less, and very easy to make.
We’ll do the lion’s share of the work using a table saw and router table, including jointing the edges of our frame pieces using the router table. Since butt joints wouldn’t suffice for strength, we’ll be using pocket hole joinery to hold the corners together. You can learn more about pocket hole joinery in this video on screw pockets.
