How to Make a Small Folding Picture Frame

February 11, 2014


This week I made this small folding picture frame to pay tribute to my guinea pig Chainsaw who died this week. I used some 1/4″ thick red oak that I had laying around the shop. I cut out the center circles with my scroll saw, and routed out the back side on my router table. After I glued it up, I added some trim around the outside to dress it up a little bit. I used an old CD case for the clear plastic to protect the pictures, but you could buy some plexiglass and that would probably work out better. I would recommend adding a clear coat to protect the wood and help pull out the grain. RIP!
