DIY Picture frames – with Shapeoko 2

Designing and carving picture frames using the Shapeoko and Easel is pretty easy. Needing some Christmas gifts for the family, Chloe and I decided to take a piece of 12″x1″ pine from Lowes. Cut it down to a bit bigger than a 8×10 photo. Stain it using Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut. Then, engrave the names of each of the children in the family using the Shapeoko. It was a fairly simple process and pretty self-explanatory with the Easel software. After the engraving was finished some very light sanding was done to remove the tear out from the router bit. I used some Super Glue to glue on some bull dog clips and we were good to go.

Here are some pictures.
