I wanted to make a gift for my grandmother for her birthday, so I made her a wood frame for a digital photo player.
I removed the original plastic frame. There are tabs that stick up from the display…
I removed the tabs with a hack saw blade.
I then sanded it down smooth.
I did draw up a few ideas on what I wanted, but did not use them.
Here is a small example piece and how it fits.
First I setup my router table and made a custom jig to make a V cut.
I adjusted my jig then I made a second V cut next to the first.
Then I adjusted everything and make a round over cut.
I made the jig closer so I can route a flat edge standing up.
Here is what everything looked like. After this step I sanded everything down and cut them to length.
I then made a jig to glue the frame together.
I used regular wood glue for this. It has lasted many years so far.
Here it is glued together before stain.
Now a view with the stain applied.
This is what it looks like where the unit is on display.
Here is a view of the back.
