Next, drill corners and holes into the perimeter design in the areas that may be tougher to get to with the Moto-Saw.

STEP 3

Step 3

Now cut out the rest of the perimeter design using the Moto-Saw. Optional: Use the Ultra-Saw to cut out the bottom of the frame, or continue using the Moto-Saw.

STEP 4

Step 4

Now you are ready to cut two front-frame pieces with the dimensions 1/4" x 1" x 10" with your Ultra-Saw. Cut two more front-frame pieces with the dimensions 1/4" x 1" x 7 1/2". Then, using a pencil and ruler, draw a 45 degree line at the corners of the four front-frame pieces. Then, continuing to use your Ultra-Saw, cut off the corners of the 4 strips of wood.

STEP 5

Paint and decorate the front of the frame and the perimeter pieces to your preference. Glue the four front-frame pieces of wood to the bottom of the frame and press firmly.
