I make a lot of picture frames, and have always sought a better way to hold them during finish application and drying. Then I came up with this handy holder.

To use it, first adjust the locations of the sharpened dowels so they fit near the corners of the rabbet on the back of the frame. Then, lay the frame on a flat surface and apply finish to its back. Rest the frame in the holder face up, and coat the front and edges.
