Subject:
Picture frame moulding profiles?

Oskar
Hi all.

As we have a number of unframed pictures at home, and I have a small number of hollow and rounds that needs tuning I´m looking to stick some mouldings for picture frames.

As I have never done this, and little gut feeling of what are nice profiles for frames I´m hoping to get some input from you.

We are talking small pictures here, at most A3 size, and somewhere inbetween A4 and A5.

The moulding planes I have purchased at flea markets are a few rounds, in 1/2 to 1 inch widths, and a hollow about 1/2 inch wide. Already have a rabbet and plow plane for roughing out.

Would be grateful to get some profile suggestions.

Best regards from Freiburg, Germany
