Making picture frames from woodworking plans is the perfect starting project for the new woodworker. Picture frames encompass a wide assortment of hand and power tools. The projects are, in general, physically small, so a large woodworking shop is not a requirement. Picture frame building is a good educational project in woodworking and reading the picture frame plans for the younger woodworker and makes an excellent gift.
Always read the picture frame woodworking plans carefully and make sure that there is enough information provided for you to be able to complete the project - before you invest in materials.
Some of the plans are excellent, giving a great deal of instruction in text, pictures and drawings while other plans are only drawings and still others are only sketches. As well, some of the free picture or mirror frame plans, require a woodworking shop that is outfitted with a good selection of stationary power tools such as a table saw, jointer and thickness planer.
Note: In many cases the picture frame plans can be used as mirror frames.
These picture frame plans are for the novice to expert woodworker.
