Well I've been building a lot of stuff lately and had a few things laying around I wanted to frame so I watched a couple youtube videos and decided to give it a try. First I had to build a couple jigs to make the process a little easier. First I built a mitre sled and then a spline jig. Mitre jig allowed me to get perfect 45 degree cuts and spline jig allowed me to reinforce the corners without nails or screws. I started with a 1x2 piece of oak and then I cut the notch in the back for the glass and and cardboard. Then I cut 1/8 inch grooves on the face of the wood to add a little character. Finished it off with some walnut stain and clear coat.

Jigs

Mitre sled

Spline jig


Gluing together with splines after initial glue up


Finished product for way cheaper than having a professional do it
