Oops, forgot to include the picture of the Miter Trimmer. I conider it a must for frames. No frame shop is without this or a similar miter trimmer. Cost is $175. Be careful of the blade, sharp is an understatement. You cut a rough 45, about 1/8th over length, then trim off 1/16th. You can get a support that has a stop on it to assure matching length pieces. It also cuts a perfect 90. The cut leaves a glassy smooth surface. This basic tool has remained largely the same since the 1880s.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
