Box-Joint Picture Frames

Display your favorite photographs elegantly with these shadow-box style picture frames.

Picture frames are the perfect weekend woodworking project. However, there’s one element that keeps many woodworkers from giving them a try — mitered corners. It’s often difficult to get a tight, gap-free fit. You won’t have that problem with these picture frames. That’s because they’re constructed using box joints instead of miters. The box joints are easy to make at the router table with a simple jig.
