Experimenting with a few things here. I thought it would be interesting to showcase how I added decorative edges to a plywood picture frame. Plus, I wanted to try dying wood with food colors as an unusual way to complement the colors in the print. Something of a mad tea party.
Make the pieces of your frame using plywood.
Glue the pieces of the frame together and add your decorative grooves in the wood.
Glue the pieces of the frame together, hold them tight with rubber bands until they dry, and then sand them smooth.
Measure the frame and trim the 45-degree angles using a miter sled.
By the way, I have two videos this week. In the other one, I build the miter sled seen in this video. If you are going to make picture frames, a miter sled is very handy. See: Make a miter sled for your table saw. Improved version.
Glue the frame together.
Now you get even more creative by using food color instead of paint!
Paint ‘er up!
How ’bout that! A perfect addition your little princess’s bedroom.
