I made designed this picture/poster to be easy to make and not require any glue! The only things you’ll need are
- 1/8’’ draftboard or wood. I used 1/8’’ MDF from Home Depot because it is dirt cheap, but any draftboard, plywood, or hardwood will do.
- 10mm (diameter) x 3mm (thickness) round magnets (I used these magnets)
The top of the frame and the bottom of the frame are each made from 4 pieces. The top back of the frame for example is made from two strips of wood connected using 4 rectangular ‘dowels’. The two magnets are pressed into the holes (the holes are slightly smaller than the magnets, so they are held in by pressure alone). The grooves show in red in the SVG file are placed facing towards each other forming a channel for the twine to be passed through. The twine is then knotted at both ends, creating a nice hanger for the frame.
I used the proofgrade settings for ‘medium draftboard’ (this works well for the home depot 1/8’’ MDF). The only change I made was I changed the number of passes for the channel engravings (in red) to 2, this will made a deeper engraving which wall accommodate thicker twine.
I like this design because I can add my own text or designs to the front of the frame. I also like not having to use glue, but you could easily alter the design to remove the square holes if you want to assemble yours using glue.
This is my first contribution to the glowforge community, let me know if you’d like any clarification or more instructions!
