  1. I've made a few hundred picture frames from 4"x5" to 4'x6'. Here is a decent article https://www.woodmagazine.com/woodworking-how-to/layout-measuring-marking/the-art-of-picture-framing I get tools and supplies from United Manufacturers Supply https://www.unitedmfrs.com/, a few from Dick Blick https://www.dickblick.com/ and the onsie-twosies from a couple of local art supply stores. I have bought some stuff from the stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby, but find they are not the most cost-effective (they once tried to charge me $100 for a $12 mat board because that's what they would have charged to have a mat cut that size). I usually make my own framing stock, cutting the profiles with a router and the rabbet on the table saw. Assemble, sand, optionally stain, and apply a finish. You certainly don't need all the tools, but it makes things faster and easier. And for the price of having 2 or 3 things professionally framed, you can buy all the tools you need. I'd get them in this order : Mat cutter, ATG dispenser, point driver (that you can also use to mount glass in frames or cabinet doors with shorter points). There's another good and more indepth article here. The guy that wrote it did a good job. DIY-Picture-Framing - Copy.pdf

  3. Thinking of changing my name......Shade Tree Carpentry,INC. Had a flimsy tent like Gazebo out back. Heavy rains and wind beat it apart. Tore it down today, but, not before some wood framing took place Had some 4x4s by 78" long. Had some 2x4s I needed to cut as rafters. Had some metal clips to help fasten the parts together, just needed something to hold things up... Stand them up, so I could add a short 4x4 king pin to the top of one rafter. Fun was about to begin This was the easy one. Note to self: next time I buy a box of screws, note what style tip it uses. Yep, I got square drive junk. I even wore out a tip today. Anyway, got all four posts and rafters cut and screwed together. Maybe a 4-12 pitch. Now came the time to put a second post and rafter onto the king pin Ah..yeah. One end was trying to stay on top of a garbage can, but not too hard. Hopped off twice. Trying to screw the next rafter to the king pin. Break time. tear the Gazebo down, clear the work area. Get a ladder set up and ready. Boss shows up ( bad move) and I put her to work. We stand the first assemly up, she's holding it while I try to attach #3 rafter to the top. #@#@#@@##! Finally got it in place. Then tried the #4.....it flopped over trying to start the first screw. Went and got a metal "Mending Plate" Added that to the mix. Made things much better. Starting to look like something? Almost. Had to go to Lowes and get seven more clips. Three to do the other rafters, and four to tie this monster to the house. Plumbed a couple posts, adjusted by sledge hammer, of course. Needed some rods added to attach the screens to. LARGE drill bit, chucked into a 1/2" drill......about broke my wrist, until I learned how to hold the dang thing enough it wouldn't spin on the bit. Four rods 8 holes, one sore wrist. My 6" circular saw by Skil, and that wrist molesting 1/2" drill. Got the topper for the Gazebo back on the frame, it was a might too small for the frame. Only cover we have, use it anyway. And installed the screens. Not the prettiest on the block, but it will do. It will NOT budge in most storms, either. Might just do...
