Duration: 3 hours

Skill Level: Beginner

Class Description: Picture framing at home seems like it should be simple, right? But why do the corners never seem to fit together perfectly unless done by a pro framing shop? We’ll teach you how to build and use a jig for any home table saw that will create perfect home-made picture frames! We’ll also teach you how to use a router table to create gorgeous custom frame profiles with two different profiles from which students can choose. Lastly, you’ll learn with us techniques for creating stronger miter joints on your future personal projects like using biscuits or splines! Leave with a gorgeous 11×14 solid hardwood picture frame!

Tuition: $129 + materials* ($29 + tax)

* Note on Materials: The class materials kit includes the wood for an 11×14 cherry, or mahogany frame; walnut kits are available for an additional $10 collected during class; glass and other framing supplies are not included, nor are they available at PW, but are easily found online and at craft stores.

Important to Know: At the end of this course you will have an assembled project ready for you to sand and oil/stain/poly/etc. on your own however you like. In class we will give you direction for several different finishing methods. We also have a wonderful finishing outline to help guide you after class. We recommend working with an art supply store or a professional framer for glass and hardware options.
