Default Picture frames

Sandra came to me with a drawing she made of some wall panels to hold 4 x 6 inch printer size pictures. She wanted 3 of them.
After measuring and figuring the final size they would be. I hunted around my shop and found the material I would be using.
First I had several bundles of oak flooring. I have had them for about 20 years. I thought they would be a good choice to use for the frames of the panels.
First I cut off the tongue and then using a shaper bit, that I have had a set of for 20 some years, I ran the oak through my router table.
I clamped a 2x4 in front of the guide and one over the top of the bit to keep the material from riding up.
It took a couple of runs through to cut the oak all the way down.
Then removed one side of the groove side and 45ed the corners.
I had some 1/4 inch plywood that was large enough to fit as the backing for the pictures.
I cut 3/4 inch by 1/8th for the edge pieces to hold the pictures. I also cut a tiny groove in the bottom edge of each strip to hold the pictures.
The whole thing will be painted a flat black. That should make the pictures pop out.
I made 3 of these panels.
They are painted and drying at the moment.
Here are a few pictures of the build.

Thanks Stick. Say, I just posted this and you have already seen and replied to it, how did you do that so fast?
I thought it would not be posted until tomorrows forum.

luck of the draw...
there's a serious T&L storm in progress....
finished the househusband stuff early...
waiting on the lasagna to finish baking...
waiting for the bread dough to rise...
waiting for the crabs to flush clean...
waiting for the rug I just shampooed to dry...
waiting on the slow cooker to finish w/ the grouse...
the SO is napping and peacefully snoring away...

so I was just sitting here having coffee, listening to the storm and eating an experiment and your post popped up......

David I like those frames. I should make some for my son and his wife to keep pictures of my grandson in. I should also make some for pictures of the two great granddaughters.

Nice project and could be scaled for any open space.

Here is a set, not sure of the quality but should be good for a few uses. Looks like that profile is in this set. https://www.amazon.com/Architectural...1324685&sr=8-2

Also check out crown molding bits for something like this.
