Forget about cutting and fitting miter joints the next time you make
a picture frame. Scrap wood, a saber saw, a fence-equipped router table
and three common router bits are all you need to make this one.
The process couldn’t be simpler: Saw and rout an opening for a 4 x
6-in. image in the center of a board; then rout flutes around the face. This procedure is ideal for making multiple frames, and changing the pattern is so
easy that you can rout several different-looking frames at the same
Those large offcuts you’ve been saving are perfect for this project,
but you can also make frame blanks by gluing up narrow stock. Hardwoods
such as birch, maple, cherry, beech, walnut and poplar are good choices.
