Making picture frames in wood allows even a senior citizen, like me, to achieve acceptable results. My daughter loves having her pictures framed by me. Saves her money and she says it becomes a family project. I reccomend this book to any beginner.

I found the information in this book very helpful, even inspiring. "Making Picture Frames" was a birthday gift a couple of years ago. I find myself referring to it constantly, even today. The topics include making custom wood moldings, wood finishing techniques, and it has about 50 molding profiles for inspiration. His techniques for building up compound frames are interesting and helpful. Perhaps the low point is the chapter on matting. Keep in mind that this book was written way-back-when, and it shows its age. Mr. Banister would have found digital photography very helpful. Not glossy, but very informative. ---An easy read.
