DIY Photo Frame for Poster Print

Posted on Dec 14, 2015 in DIY, Hobbies

Costco has 20x30in poster prints for under $10 and in the past I’ve used cheap $25 frames from Amazon, but even at that price it adds up quick. I figured it wouldn’t be too much work to make my own homemade frames since I now have the tools and shop to do so. I already had three prints lying around so this afternoon I made three frames.

For my first attempt I think they turned out nice. The frame is made from pre-primered trim boars from Home Depot; they cost around $3.50 for an 8 footer. I then used a plastic board (its similar to cardboard in build) to support the poster in the frame.

I used a jig to make the frames square. They are held together with wood glue, brad nails and staples.

Soaring Through Phoenix Oregon

Day 3 with my Phantom 2. I’m starting to learn what works and what doesn’t. Definitely need to learn to throttle on turns and pans.

A Night on Red Butte

Sleeping Atop Red Butte in the Red Buttes Wilderness

On the spur of the moment I decided to sleep under the open sky on top of Red Butte – after all it is summer, so why not?. Although the wind was howling most of the evening, the rock barrier did well at keeping the wind to a minimum. I thought about attempting to get a photo of the stars, but sawing logs was more appealing. The Red Buttes Wilderness sure is beautiful.

Adventure to Azalea Lake

Two miles up a single track trail to Frog Pond then blazing our own trail for three miles up and over Mt Emily to Azalea Lake. Altogether about a ten mile trip. Great way to spend the Saturday on a sunny day in the Red Buttes Wilderness.

What a fun trip it was this year for the Trinidad to Clam Beach Run!

We drove over Friday night, went for an easy run through the redwoods, then camped out under the stars on the beach at Gold Bluffs Beach Campground. The next day we drove the rest of the way to Trinidad for the race. Some ran the 5 3/4 and others the 8 3/4. Nevina was happy to announce that she beat Philip’s time from 2 years ago in the 8 3/4 while Randy took the win in the 5 3/4. Before driving back home, we made a stop at Fern Canyon.

It was beautiful weather then entire weekend. Official Track season is now only four weeks away!
