WOOD magazine review

Rout frame profiles in one pass

Review Summary

Making your own frames adds a personal touch to a prized photo, painting, or child’s drawing, and Eagle America’s picture-frame router bits make it easy to create eye-catching profiles in one pass on your router table. No need to use a variety of different-shaped bits to achieve the five profiles shown here. And to top it off, these U.S.-made bits cut cleanly—cutting the full profile in one pass—in all the species I tried, including some prone to tear-out (figured maple, red oak, and hickory).
After routing the profile, you cut a rabbet on the back for the picture and glass. The five profile bits shown come as a set, or sell for $40–$45 apiece. —Tested by Bob Hunter, Tools Editor
