Tools & Materials for Pallet Picture Frame
These are the things you will need to make a DIY pallet picture frame:
- Nail guns
- Glass cutter
- Table saw
- Miter saw
- Picture frame mat
- Picture hanger
First, I separated the pallet wood of the same size and thickness. Usually, you won’t find pallet woods with the same thickness or size. But I was lucky enough.
I took all the boards and pass them through the thickness planer machine. This was necessary, to make sure that all the boards are in the same size and length.
With the help of a table saw, I cut the wood according to the size of the picture frame I needed.
I cut the rabbet according to the frame size I needed. This was a bit difficult step but I did it successfully in the end. If you find it difficult, watch a tutorial on YouTube or see the pictures.
Next, I needed 45-degree angles to make up the picture frame. It was easy and I used a table saw for this step. You won’t find any difficulties in cutting 45-degree angles for the picture frame.
Now the hard work has been done and it’s time to join all the pieces together. I assembled all the pieces and glue them. Also, I used the brad nails to make sure that all the pieces are secure.
The frame was ready and I used sandpaper to smooth all the surfaces of the frame. Then I sprayed the frame with my favorite color. You can use a paintbrush to paint the frame but I recommend the spray as it’s easy to do.
Step-8: Next, I needed glass for the picture frame. It was the most difficult step of pallet picture frame DIY. If you do not have the tools for cutting the glass, then buy a glass from a nearby shop.
I purchased a mat according to my frame size and add it to the frame. The work has done and my frame was ready.
The last step was securing the frame with brackets. I took some small pieces of wood and used them to secure the frame. It was an easy step and I did it easily.
