When you walk into a house, one of the first things to catch the eye is the artwork and photographs displayed. These memories and momentos tell the story of the home and people who inhabit it. The frames that hold these treasures are a universal piece of decor. If you have something to frame or are looking for a special gift idea, why not make your own picture frames?
How to Make Picture Frames is a collection of some of the best framing projects published by American Woodworker magazine, the premier publication for woodworking. From simple frames to more complex and highly decorated ones, the experts at American Woodworker provide all the step-by-step instructions you need, along with the workshop tips, matting and mounting instructions, and plans for jigs that guarantee success. Some of the frames can even be made out of scrap stock in a day using nothing but basic power tools.
