Default MDF Picture Frames

Does anyone have any files that they would be willing to share that they use for MDF picture frames. My wife wants a bunch of different designs to put pictures in around the house. Since she was nice enough to let me order my new machine I figured this would be a good project to get started with. I have drawn a few but was hoping someone had some already drawn up that I could use to get started.

Here is a sample of a lot of the frames I drew up. Most of these are double frames (larger frame on the back that has the keyhole slots on the back for hanging, then a smaller frame glued to the front to double the thickness). These look good painted two colours.

You will know the bottom frame because it has keyholes and a double line for the cutout (cut the back side first - the keyholes and the outer cutout line; I cut inside the profile of the outer cutout line, to a depth .15" less than full depth - then when I cut the inside profile on the front side the cutout comes free).

That's pretty neat Russell. What kind of sheet goods do you use, 1/2" Baltic birch?

You said you cut one side down to within .15 and then cut the other side, How do you keep the frames from coming out?

Mark

These are 1/2" or 3/4" MDF.

The pictures in the frame need a lip to sit up against. So I cut the back of the sheet first, cutting that lip with a simple profile cut. On 3/4" stock I cut .6" deep with my normal 3/8" compression bit. Then when I flip it over, I cut 1/4" deep on the inside line, which releases the cut-out. Then I use an ogee profile bit and cut the outer profiles, about .6" deep, Then I go back with a 1/8" bit and cut the last .15". I hold the sheet down with a few Raptor composite nails, and have 3/8" dowels in each corner to index the sheet for when I flip it over to cut both sides.

Thanks Russell for the information. I got some details on the Raptor gun a while back but haven't acted on it. Seems pretty expensive but can see how it might work well especially in that situation.

Mark.

Since I'm not cutting through when I cut the first side, I use vacuum hold down. Then I use the raptor nails on the second side cut because I have so many cut-outs. Just keeps it from shifting laterally.

I only have Vcarve. Is there a way to open this in Vcarve or is it Aspire only?
