I wanted to share 2 of fixture I made for making my own frames. I know I'm not saving much by making them but have enjoyed doing it very much. Fortunate I purchased all of my equipment years ago.

Jointer fixture for the side bars:

I made my side bars out of 2x6's so they would fit on my jointer; I've been able to make 1 pass on each side with a new cutter. This might be overkill but it worked very well at applying down pressure and keeping my hands out of the way.

I'll post up my side bar cutter later. If anyone else wants to share please do so!!!
