Hi Meanmachine

It's a strait forward job once you make a template and by using to brass guides and a plunge router.
But you are ahead of the game because you have the patterns

This should give you a hint how to make the templates

If it is such a 'Straight forward' job as you say why not tell him how it is done. The hints you suggested were in no way showing a method of how the job can be done.

That is a neat little project! What are those for?

There are a lot of steps I only wish I had time to sit here in the shop and work it all out for you.

It is very difficult to explain without me doing it and showing pictures.
The more tricky part is actually putting in the rabbits and detail I see on either side of the piece. There are so many ways to do it, but for me I need to work it out in the shop as I do it and I just do not have time for it.

You can make the templates using the pieces you have already. Use the template guides, the first with a fairly large offset and trace the router around that positive image you have to make a piece with a negative image.

Now you have a negative image you can use to make the outside and inside perimeter of the frame you want made. You will need to determine the correct template guides that puts the router bit where it needs to be(offset) to cut out the original size frame you want using the neg image you just made(does that make sense?). There is always an issue with the inside curves being just right so messing around with what guides to use, when and where is the important thing.

Hard to put into words hopefully some of what I said can get you started.

Nick

May I respectfully suggest that you first of all complete all details in your public profile, members tend not to devote time and effort in helping anonymous members. One question, did YOU make the frames shown? Just a hint, your photos are very large, around 600 X 450 is the norm.

Thank you George for completing your profile, by the look of it, Doak, aka Template Tom will be demonstrating how to make your frames.
