  • How to frame a canvas?

    Does anyone have any plans for building a picture frame to hold a stretched canvas or oil painting? My wife and I bought a painting in Hawaii 10 years ago and I am finally getting around to framing it. I want to make a simple craftsman style frame with overlapped joints - but unless I make the thing out of 2" thick stock, how do I hold the canvas in place?

    Thanks - Travis

    pocket screw holes in the back of your frame directed towards the inside of the frame so that a short screw will only penetrate the edge of the canvas frame. Your would not have to be as deep as the canvas frame.
