    Hi all,

    I want to try making the Tenoned Miter frame from the video Paul did a few years ago, but he does not reference what size stock to use.

    I’m guessing he is using 3/4” stock based on the chisel size he used for making the Tenon Jig, but looking for some insight. Maybe it was just a simple oversight in the video, as he usually tells us what size stock he is using?

    Thanks for the help, looking forward to mastering this and making many.

    Pat

    Sorry just seeing this is for “unofficial projects”……I’ll try and post elsewhere

    This is the picture frame video? If so I think the final thickness in the video is near 3/4. Could start from pre-milled 3/4 (aka 1″) or rough 7/8 (aka 1″ or 4quarter).

    I think it is going to be a bit harder to make a frame less than 3/4 final thickness. Things get tight and thin. Also have to consider how much depth you need for mounting.

    Personally I have found 3/4 to be barely enough for fitting a protective glass (actually I use plastic for shipping/kids throwing stuff/earthquake reasons) front + masking + the art + 1/4 inch backing + the little pins to hold it all into the frame. I guess it wouldn’t be too hard to find a backing that was 1/8 for a smaller frame, however.

    I don’t think you will regret having made the jig for 3/4 even if you end up preferring thicker and making another jig simply because a frame is a good way to use some left over 3/4 material.
