Tips for Making Wood Frames for Stained Glass Beginning with the size of your finished panel, add the miter allowance to get the correct outside size to cut the frame:
- 1" wide frame stock: add 1-5/16"
- 1-3/8" wide frame stock: add 2-1/16"
- 2" wide frame stock: add 3-5/16"
Use framing screws #8845 for the corners. Following the package directions, drill corner holes and insert screws.
Delphi Tips: To prevent the sideways "drift" or "stepping" you may experience when assembling the frame, just place a C-clamp covering both mitered edges. Keep it snug – but not too tight, and insert screw.
Side Mount Hooks #8841 are a strong and secure method of hanging framed stained glass panels.
