Make 15 Picture Frames with a Scroll Saw!

I created an eBook of 15 Scroll Saw Picture Frames for a presentation I did for the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association.  Check out the video below, and if you like what you see, Click Here to purchase my eBook of all 15 templates!


I made all of these projects using my Dewalt DW788 Scroll Saw.  If you have other tools, such as a tablesaw, you can use them to prepare your blanks and make most of the straight cuts to save some time.  If you don't have a scroll saw, you can use a jig saw for most of the interior cuts and a coping saw for the fine-detailed interior cuts.

Here is a low-res preview of my eBook of 15 Scroll Saw Picture Frames in case you are wondering what's included.  It contains 50 pages of templates, photos, and information for making these picture frames.

Let's take a closer look at each picture frame.  All of these frames consist of a main board with an opening cut for a photo, then a smaller face frame is glued on top to hold the picture in.  Check them out and enjoy!  Happy woodworking!

  1. Brilliant idea using a face frame to hold the picture in. I make a lot of frames and the part I hate most is routing rabbets. Will have to try your method.

    1. Hey Rob! Thanks man! Yeah, using a router on a project is my best chance to ruin it, so I avoid it if I can. I think there are people out there who just use a scroll saw and may not have a router, so I thought this was a good alternative.
