If you are curious about woodworking, then learning how to build a picture frame serves as an excellent lesson in basic woodworking principles. The class is based on the concept of guidance, and students will be coached through the step-by-step process of building a custom picture frame. During this class, you’ll learn the qualities of wood, the necessary measurements, the proper assembly, and how to finish the project. By the end of the course, you’ll walk away with a picture frame you created.
What you will learn
Frame Making Workshop is broken down into three separate parts: the steps needed to build a picture frame. You will be introduced to the required tools and safety precautions, which will be elaborated upon throughout the workshop. After getting acquainted with the lingo and the environment, you’ll get set up to work. You will cut components, shape components, sand components, assemble components, shape more components, and assemble more components! After it’s all said and done, you’ll put some finish on your very own picture frame and call it a night.
