Framing timber is similar to door trim or skirting moulding but also has a rebate at the back.
TIP Sizes vary but a rebate of 10 x 5mm accommodates a poster or paper picture plus 3mm thick MDF backing and 2mm thick glass.
BUYING THE MATERIALS
When ordering the timber check there’s enough to go around the picture plus eight times the width of timber for the mitres.
For light frames smaller than A3, reinforce mitres with nails skewed through them and add framing staples at the back. Use glazing push pins to secure 3mm thick MDF backing.
TIP Buy a framing kit from a hardware store that includes clamps, staples and pins or buy them individually.
