No-Miter Frames

Get great-looking picture frames without miters! This plan shows you how with six design options.

The mitered corners prevent some woodworkers from trying picture frames. It's often difficult to get a clean, gap-free fit. You won't have that problem with these frames. That's because they're built without miters. Instead, they use a layered construction technique that simplifies the joinery without sacrificing any of the strength.
