And here's why: The whole purpose of this blog is to show the readers projects that anyone can make. This wrap around frame doesn't fit that qualification, simply because of the kind of tools it takes to make it. After consulting with a friend well-versed in carpentry, it doesn't look like this project is something the How-To Gal can show you.
Quote from carpentry friend: For this project, "You would need a miter-saw to cut all the wood (around $40), a router (and router bits, the cheapest ones are around $100) and special clamps that hold the edges of the frame together while the glue dries ($20)....They are definitely not the kinds of tools you expect people to have. I hate to burst your bubble on this project, but I just don't think it's practical."
Sometimes, even a favorite project has to bite the dust. Sad face.
But never fear, The How-To Gal has several more projects up her sleeve to wow and impress you! Stay tuned!
