Large picture frames with splined corners (fast version)

The full 30-minute version of this video can be found at, with more tips and details about the project, and maybe even a few attempts at humor. Sometimes it’s more fun to just watch progress in fast-forward.

These frames are built with hard maple, and feature purpleheart splines in the corner for strength and style. Picture frames aren’t very difficult to make, but there are a lot of small details that can change the outcome. I’ve made plenty of picture frames throughout the years, and it always seems to take longer than it should because of the time required to calibrate power tools, build or set up jigs, and verify that each angle and measurement is exactly as it should be. This was one of my smoothest builds yet, mostly thanks to some extra time spent making a better spline jig for the table saw.
