A homemade frame is better than a store-bought one for expressing the owner’s personal taste. It’s also far less expensive. This fully illustrated, hands-on guide—now revised and expanded—features easy-to-follow diagrams throughout and expert tips on selecting the best frame for the picture, from ornate elegance to beautiful simplicity. It covers all you’ll need to get started: preparing the artwork, mounting and basic construction techniques, decorative trims and moldings, and eye-catching finishes. And the fun continues with ideas for making fancy cuts of wood and other materials, and money-saving tips for renovating old frames, and repairing family heirlooms.
