bobj3 This is a OLD post but if anyone is looking for a bit to make picture frames this one works great..

Picture Frame Rabbet Bits

I recommend part #8623

The front of the picture frame can be just about any router bit you have or want to use..

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Picture frame router bit

I need to make a bunch of art frames for my wife and family. I am in search of a router bit or a series of simpler cuts that will produce a nice profile picture frame molding. The pictures I have in mind are about 24x30 - I am thinking of a finished frame 1 1/2" - 2" wide. I can handle the rabbet for the glass, matting, art, and backing.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
