Picture Frame from Hardwood Flooring

Several years ago our church started remodelling our worship center. When it came time for the church to pull up the old flooring, they offered pieces of it to the congregation. My husband and I wanted to have a piece of church history, so we selected a few pieces. At the time, my idea was to turn it into a frame. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the tools I needed to complete the project until recently.

I took the pieces of wood and routed the tongue off one side and routed the bottom of the groove off of the other side. This left a lip for the glass, mat board, and backer board to sit in. I then mitered the edges at 45 degrees, and used my kreg jig to created pocket holes.


I then screwed the pieces of wood together, making sure to clamp the edges together tightly so they pieces wouldn’t shift. I had an extra piece of glass lying around from another project, so I cut the glass, mat board, and backer board to fit.


Once I get final approval on the project from the hubby, we will pick out photos and I will cut the openings for the pictures
