Mitre Cutting

The first step to making a rectangle picture frame is to cut a 45 mitre on the ends of the moulding. Each side must be cut accurately to length, have an accurate 45 degree angle and have a smooth finish.

Most people start with a simple hand saw held in a guide, which can be obtained from any DIY superstore. If you want to improve the results from that. a mitre trimmer cuts a 45 degree angle with a smooth finish perfect for picture framing.

For professional bespoke framers a mitre guillotine is the only choice, giving a combination of speed and accuracy.
