Inlaid Picture Frame
Adding a band of decorative inlay really spices up a simple frame.
Making inlay banding is a great way to customize a project. But you need a good project to put it to use. This picture frame is the perfect application. The design is a basic mitered frame shaped with common router bits and wrapped with contrasting edging. However it’s the inlay banding that really sets it apart from more conventional frame designs. This plan include all the information you need to make your own inlay banding.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
