Run the Jewels recently announced a new tour for Fall 2015. They released a Blade Runner themed poster in support which I promptly purchased. A few days later I returned to their store site for the dimensions in order to look for a frame. During that time a pre-framed option was introduced. The profile used simple, clean lines matching well with the sci-fi theme.
It also appeared to be something that could be accomplished with just a table saw. I grabbed some scrap 1×2 pine to give it a try. First up was a 45 degree bevel on the inner edge. I also cut the back, outside corner at the same angle to give an impression of floating away from the wall. Next was a shallow cut at the bevel’s edge to form a step. Last was two deeper cuts forming a rabbet for the glass and art.
I was quite pleased with the result considering it was thrown together on a whim. My chop saw introduced a lot of error in the mitered corners, so I plan to build a miter sled for my table saw. I also purchased three different style corner clamps from Harbor Freight for future attempts.
