Write down the measurements
Step 2 - Selecting stock
Locate a board of alder that will accommodate your total length and width

You should be able to get two different lengths out of one board

Share with a partner if possible
Step 3 – Cutting to rough length Cut to rough length using the mitre saw or radial arm saw
Bow of board goes up against the fence
Step 4 - Joint or plane one face Use the jointer to create a reference face
Board must be longer then 12 inches
You can use the planer instead if the board is relatively flat to begin with
Mark the new jointed face with an X
Step 5 - Joint one edge Joint one edge
Mark a X as a reference on both jointed sides
Board must be longer than 12 inches
Step 6 - Plane to thickness Plane to final thickness (no smaller than 5/8”)
Move table up one revolution at a time
Step 7 - Rip on the table saw

Measure the width of the board, divide by two and minus ¼ inch
Rip four equal pieces at that measurement on the table saw
Step 8 - Create outer profile Select router bit for outside profile
Use a practice piece
Set up the feather boards
Follow proper safety procedures
Step 9 - Create rabbet joint Use router table to create a rabbet joint to hold the picture/acrylic/backing board
Follow proper safety procedures
Max depth of cut ¼ inch per pass
Step 10 – Layout the mitre locations Use the rabbet joint to layout finished measurements on the face of the picture
Mark the mitre location on the frame

Step 11 – Cut the mitre joint
