Pallet Wood Frame to Hang Photos / Cadre de bois de palettes pour photos

J’ai offert à mon amie qui voulait acheter un tel cadre de venir en fabriquer un avec moi, lui donnant ainsi l’occasion d’économiser et d’expérimenter le travail du bois. Un projet qui a pris 2-1/2 heure, de la conception à l’application de la teinture.

Après avoir coupé les traverses, j’utilise mon gabarit à biseauter maison pour profiler le rail supérieur.

I offered to my friend who wanted to buy such frame to come and make one with me, giving her the opportunity to save and to experiment woodworking. A project that took 2-1/2 hour, from design to applying stain.

After cutting the rails to length, I’m using my homemade tapering jig to shape the top rail.

Je déligne le rail inférieur à la même largeur que les extrémités du rail supérieur.

I’m ripping the lower rail the same width as the upper rail ends.

Les côtés coupés, nous (nous) ponçons toutes les pièces.

The sides being cut, we (we) sand all pieces.

Juste à temps, elle a exprimé le désir d’un cœur découpé, ce que j’ai réalisé avec une fraise Forster de 1″ (2.5cm) et une scie sauteuse. Une étape additionnelle facile et rapide !

Just in time she shared the desire for this cutout heart, what I did using a 1″ (2.5cm) Forstner bit and a jigsaw. A quick and easy additional step !

Elle a été impressionnée par la facilité et l’efficacité de la technique d’assemblage par vis cachées.

She was impressed how easy and effective the pocket hole assembly technique is.

Les dernières photos montrent les rainures réalisées à la toupie (défonceuse) et une fraise étagée pour l’accrocher au mur sur deux vis.

The remaining photos show the slots made with a router and a step bit to hang it to the wall on two screws.

Pour alimenter notre amitié et passer un bel après-midi je n’ai eu qu’à investir quatre de mes planches de palettes, quatre œillets, huit vis cachées et quelques gouttes de ma teinture maison.

To feed out friendship and to spend a wonderful afternoon I only had to invest four of my pallet boards, four screw eyes, eight pocket screws and few drops of my homemade stain.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Ce cadre avec les cordelettes m’inspire pour exposer les “œuvres” de mon fils. Comme il y a un certain “roulement” dans ses réalisations, cela permet de changer facilement les dessins/peintures/etc. qui seront affichés.
    Pour respecter scrupuleusement ta méthode, il ne me reste plus qu’à trouver le personnel féminin nécessaire à la réalisation du cadre 🙂

    Au plaisir,
    Oli

      Bonjour Oli,

      Très bonne idée pour exposer les oeuvres de ton fils. Quant au personnel féminin, je crois que tu n’auras qu’à lever le petit doigt !

      Au plaisir…

    A very nice thing for you to do for a friend. She ended up with a very attractive frame, you had some enjoyable time with a friend, and you may have created a new woodworking convert. Well done.

    Serge, she’s a lucky person to have some personal instruction from a professional like you! It’s very satisfying to teach someone who is interested in learning something you know well. I once helped a young woman make a desk for herself and I found it very rewarding.

    By the way, I have the exact same remote control attached to my apron for my dust collector! Got it from Lee Valley many years ago.

      Hi Mark, I’m also a lucky person. She the one with whom I practice my English speaking each time we meet.

      I’m glad you live far from my home because your remote could trigger my dust collector (or vice-versa) ! I got mine from a local tool retailer.

      Thank you Steve. Don’t forget to pass the link of my website to your enthusiastic friend.

    Bonjour Serge,

    First let me congratulate you on your willingness to not only help your friend, but also to get her involved in woodworking in having a hand in making her own picture frame which is much more meaningful than just doing it for her. She is so lucky to have such a skilled woodworker close by that she can learn from. I envy her
    Also, I was very pleased after all this time to see what you look like…nice picture my friend.
    My wife and I just got back from spending 2 fantastic weeks vacationing with my wife’s cousin on a farm in the Eastern Townships east of Montreal. My wife’s cousin’s son is an artist from Montreal and I bought one of his paintings of cars travelling west on Highway 10 (Eastern Townships AutoRoute) towards Montreal. It is a beautiful painting with the sun setting in the background ahead of several cars navigating a curve on their way west. He did the painting on what was a small piece of a melamine door from a bathroom vanity. Odd, but he can paint on anything. I was puzzled on how I was going to find a frame to fit such an odd size. Your post above solved my dilemma and has inspired me to make my own frame as I have a Kreg K3, and I like the offset of your rails and stiles. I am going to use pine, and I am going scorch it with my butane torch to give it a very rustic look.
    Again merci Serge for your post….the timing was perfect

    Bon Journee

      Hi Brian,

      First, thank you for your kind words. I enjoyed spending time with my friend on her first attempt on woodworking. Her smile from the pictures tells a lot.

      You will certainly approve if I say that the Eastern Townships is a beautiful area. And give anything to an artist and he/she will come up with something beautiful. Their imagination and creativity are endless. There are lots of them in the Eastern Townships.

      I’m glad to know this post inspired you. Get in your shop and follow your own creativity. It would be nice if you would send me a photo of your frame. I would see your frame and the painting he did.

      Best,
      Serge
