    Hello guys here is my first try at a picture frame, I cut the miters on my Delta Benchtop table saw with my miter guage, and I use my router to put a nice edge on it and I rabbet the back.

    Looks good CJ. Miters are one of the things a lot of woodworkers shy away from and picture frames are even more avoidable by some. You did good. Keep it up.

    CJ, miters, rabbets, dados; when you get into compound miters then you can start putting up trim and be in the real money. Won't have time to go fishing you will be making so much. You can also become a snob like all finish carpenters I know. Those boys don't even consider stick builders to be on the same earth.
