How to Make a Picture Frame from Bloodwood


There you go buddy I conjured this up for
christmas Oh why thank you
So, what’s in the picture? Stick around until the end and all will be
revealed, as they say In the meantime, here’s our take on making
a basic picture frame We’ll kick off the build by firstly putting
the stock through the jointer In this case we’re using bloodwood
That’s the edge done now for the face Hone it to a uniform thickness
In this first of two sandings we’ll use the 120 grit and then the 240
Raising the grain And a final sand with 400 grit
Moving on to the router we’ll firstly rout the frame’s inner profile
Looking good Now for the rabbet Next up the slots for the biscuits
Now back over to the router to complete the outer profile
Mix up the shellac And once that’s dry we’ll rub it back lightly
with an 800 grit After a very light sand followed by residue
removal we’ll apply a final coat of shellac With the hanger done that just leaves the
tabs And finally the backing board and glass There you go buddy I conjured this up for
christmas Oh why thank you
