Picture Frame Set Instructions

The instructions which follow show how to produce six beautiful moldings, but these are but a few of the many designs you can produce with your picture frame set and a little imagination. For an excellent article of building picture frames please see the June, 1998 issue of WOOD® Magazine

Instructions for use:
  1. Select the profile you wish to produce from the illustrations shown below
  2. Select and mill your stock: All of these profiles require 3/4" x 1-1/2" stock. Select stock that is straight, clean and free of knots. Be sure the edges are square. Use stock that is at least a few inches longer than the finished length of molding you require, this well allow you to cut off any imperfections that are created as you start or finish the cut. Do not attempt to mill very short pieces!
  3. Mill the molding following the steps shown. Note: molding styles 1-5 require a 3/8" x 3/8" rabbet for the glass, picture and mat. Style #6 requires a 3/8" x 1/2" rabbet. This rabbet can be cut in several ways: with two passes on your table saw, with Jesada's Rabbet Master Plus Set (not included) or with Jesada's Joint-Master™ Dado Set
