Thoughts on framing, the unacknowledged orphan of the arts. Fruit from the fields of obscurity. Frames, art, techniques.
Inletting for the plywood splines used for reinforcing frame mitres. I use a carbide tipped, 1/2 inch groover. The wood clamp is a stop. The splines are 2 inches, approx. wide, so 1 inch from each frame section.
The frame, with splines waiting to be marked for trimming, prior to glueing and nailing. In the vise is a grooved block, for holding the splines to be trimmed with the small block plane, to fit. I nail the splines with a pneumatic finish nail gun.
